2017-2019 Annual Report

Comparing Crime Statistics

Crime statistics in this report should not be compared to statistics from previous Annual Statistical Reports due to changes in counting rules.

It is also not recommended that the crime statistics in this report be compared to crime statistics prepared by other agencies due to the fact that different methods of categorization, geographic, technical, data, and time constraints may affect the outcome.

Although comparing exact numbers is not recommended, the general trends and magnitude of change should be similar regardless of the counting method.

Detailed information pertaining to Statistics Canada crime reporting methodology can be found in the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey documents posted on Statistics Canada website.
