Note: Includes non-interjurisdiction support order cases only with at least one child beneficiary under the age of 20 and with a known location. The Survey of Maintenance Enforcement Programs receives data on a monthly basis from the Maintenance Enforcement Programs. The payment received variable is an aggregation of all payments received in the reference month, less any adjustments to those payments received that occur in the month. The source of payment variable relates only to the last payment received. Thus, if some payments were received through different sources, the amount of payment received would be either overstated or understated, based upon which payment source was associated with the last payment made in the month. The extent of this limitation cannot be quantified, however the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics did assess the reasonableness of the estimates.
