1. Custody figures include sentenced custody, remand and other temporary detention (or a combination thereof).
2. Figures at the provincial level refer to admissions to probation, conditional sentences and provincial parole (as applicable). Figures at the federal level refer to admissions to parole and statutory release.
3. Rates are calculated per 100,000 adult population (18 years and over) using revised July 1st population estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
4. Data for 2000/2001 were unavailable. As such, the percent change from 2000/2001 to 2010/2011 cannot be calculated.
5. Data published by Alberta's Ministry of the Solicitor General and Public Security are lower than the data published by Statistics Canada due to different counting methodologies. The numbers in this table represent movement from one status in correctional services to another. For instance, an individual who moves from remand to sentenced custody is counted as one admission to remand and one admission to sentenced custody. Alberta uses a different methodology whereby an admission to custody is counted once, regardless of a change in status.
6. Total figures for 2010/2011 exclude British Columbia and Nunavut. The percent change from 2009/2010 to 2010/2011 excludes British Columbia and Nunavut. The percent change from 2000/2001 to 2010/2011 excludes New Brunswick, Alberta, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
Note: An admission is counted each time a person begins any type of custody or community supervision program. The same person can be included several times in the admission counts where the individual moves from one type of legal status to another or re-enters the system in the same year. Figures may not add up due to rounding.
