Violent crime severity
Data from the Police Reported Crime Severity Index. Measures changes in the level of severity of crime in Canada from year to year. In the index, all crimes are assigned a weight based on their seriousness, based on actual sentences handed down in all provinces and territories. Serious crimes are assigned high weights while less serious offences have lower weights. As a result, serious offences have a greater impact on changes in the index. The violent Crime Severity Index includes all Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey violent violations. Data is compared to the 2006 baseline. This dataset is no longer compiled by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. The data can be accessed from Statistics Canada.
