UCR Monthly Numbers


I have a researcher who is making use of the UCR but needs more up-to-date information. Is it possible to obtain monthly data--if so, how should she proceed?

Unfortunately, UCR data is not available monthly.

Response from subject matter: UCR is an annual release.

The 2015 data is here http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/85-002-x/2016001/article/14642-eng.htm and was published in July. This data includes the entire 2015 year as the data reflected is annual. 2016 data will not be available until July 2017. Our 2015 RDC file has not yet been released.
