The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (CCJS), in co-operation with the policing community, collects police-reported crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR). The UCR Survey was designed to measure the incidence of crime in Canadian society and its characteristics. This dataset contains specific incident rates for crime in the City of Toronto at the level of Census Tract.
Incident rates are available for the following crime categories: violent crime, property crime, sexual assault, drug offences, shoplifting, criminal harassment, uttering threat, minor assault, major assault, robbery, theft from a motor vehicle, theft of a motor vehicle, break and enter, mischief, and "other theft".
The data are provided in .xls tabular format. The data can be mapped using Statistics Canada Census 2006 shapefiles for census tracts in the City of Toronto (available from the Library). The Census Tract field, CTUID, needs to be modified to include the CMA number prior to joining the data to the boundary file.
