1. Admission and release counts presented in this report comply with the nationally recognized definitions developed to provide comparability across jurisdictions. Alberta uses a different counting methodology which makes it difficult to compare its official counts to those produced by the Youth Custody and Community Services survey.
Note: Rates are calculated on the basis of 10,000 youth population aged 12 to 17. The population estimates come from Statistics Canada, Demography Division, Populations as of July 1st: postcensal for 2008.
