1. Rates are calculated per 100,000 youth (12 to 17 years) population. Population estimates at July 1st 2010 provided by Statistics Canada, Demography Division. Estimates are final intercensal from 2000 to 2006, final postcensal for 2007, updated postcensal for 2008 and 2009 and preliminary postcensal for 2010.
Note: Figures in this table may not match those from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, as that survey includes those under the age of 12 in youth counts. Estimates prior to 2010 may differ from previously published figures due to ongoing updates to the data files as new information becomes available.
