Young Offender Statistics from 1984 to 1991


I was able to download young offender statistics from the ftp for the years1991 to 2007. I'm looking for any young offender statistics from 1984 to1991 (even if they are not comparable to the 1991 to 2007 young offender statistics). Specifically I'm looking for sentencing patterns, gender/age distribution, comparison of violent crime. Basically anything that shows how the administration has dealt with young offenders.

If you have any information, please let me know.


The following CANSIM tables may be of interest. You can download them for free through E-STAT (

• Homicide survey, victims and persons accused of homicide, by age group and sex, Canada, annual (number), 1974 to 2007 (CANSIM Table 253-0003)

• Adult and youth charged, by detailed offences, annual (number), 1977 to 2008 (CANSIM Table 252-0014)

The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics tells me that more young offender statistics would be available for a fee as a custom extraction. I will be happy to refer you to an Account-Executive if you would like to discuss the production of specific tables. The Account-Executive could also provide cost estimates for the tables.

Historical statistics will also be available in print publications such as the ones listed below. The researcher or student should be able to order these through inter-library loan or consult them on site in a local library if they aren't in your collection.
