E use with caution.
With the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec, differences in proportions between provinces were not statistically significant.
E use with caution.
A blended family contains children of both spouses (married or common-law) from one or more previous unions or one or more children from the current union and one or more children from previous unions.
Due to small numbers, the proportion of victims who experienced spousal violence in the previous 12 months were not publishable for the following: sexual orientation, presence of an activity limitation, Aboriginal identity, visible minority status and immigrant status. Therefore, proportions are based upon 5-year estimates of spousal violence by a current or former partner.
It should be noted that respondents may not have had their health condition or activity limitation when the incident of spousal violence occurred.
The question used to identify the Aboriginal population in the 2009 victimization survey is different than that used in 2004 and 1999. The 2009 results for the Aboriginal population should not, therefore, be directly compared with those from previous victimization surveys. Households in the ten provinces were selected for the GSS by a sampling method called Random Digit Dialling (RDD) and respondents were interviewed by telephone. It should be noted that the proportion of households with a landline telephone may be low on some Indian reserves and settlements.
