Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR)
Geographic location of incident, name
Geographic location refers to the physical place a statistical unit is located and for which statistics are collected and disseminated.
Incident refers to the occurrence of one (or more) criminal offence(s) during one single, distinct event, regardless of the number of victims. If there are multiple victims or multiple accused persons, the offences must occur at the same location and at the same time if they are to be included within the same incident. The incident count will normally be lower than the victim count due to incidents involving multiple victims.
The data for this variable are reported using the following classifications and/or lists:
- Statistical Area Classification by Province and Territory - Variant of SGC 2011
- Crime severity index and weighted clearance rates Table: 252-0052
- Incident-based crime statistics, by detailed violations Table: 252-0051
