List of weighted clearance rates
1 - Weighted clearance rate
The weighted clearance rate is based on the same principles as the Police Reported Crime Severity Index (PRCSI), whereby more serious offences are assigned a higher "weight" than less serious offences. For example, the clearing of homicides, robberies or break and enters would represent a greater contribution to the overall weighted clearance rate value than the clearing of minor theft, mischief or disturbing the peace.
2 - Violent weighted clearance rate
The violent crime severity index includes all Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR2) violent violations, some of which were not previously included in the aggregate violent crime category, including uttering threats, criminal harassment and forcible confinement.
3 - Non-violent weighted clearance rate
Refers to all non-violent Criminal Code violations including traffic, as well as drug violations and all federal statutes.
