Note: Crime rates are based upon Criminal Code incidents (excluding traffic offences). See Table 4 for the list of offences included in each crime category. Refers to the number of youth 12 to 17 years of age who were either charged (or recommended for charging) by police or diverted from the formal criminal justice system through the use of warnings, cautions, referrals to community programs, etc. Counts are based upon the most serious violation in the incident. One incident may involve multiple violations. Data for the youth crime rates of total, violent, property and other crime categories are available beginning in 1977. Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 youth population. Percent change based on unrounded rates. Populations based upon July 1st estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
