CrimeStats provides 30 variables related to the crime rate in crime and the risk of crime in 2020 and 2025. The database, which is derived from the CAP Index’s CRIMECAST® database, uses statistics, demographics and computer modelling to determine the likelihood of crime for any location in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. CRIMECAST® was developed by correlating a broad array of demographic variables—such as housing, economic and education data (but not race, religion and gender information)—with historical crime data, survey information and other known indicators of crime. The result is an index-based dataset that provides a crime risk score between zero and 2,000, with an average of 100 for every dissemination area or postal code in Canada.
