Criminal Organization and Street Gang Offences
2016 - 2021
The Criminal Organization and Street Gang Offences (COSGO) files identify a cohort of individuals that were involved in police-reported criminal organization/street gang offences between 2016 and 2021, as well as their involvement in previous and subsequent police-reported incidents. The files include data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR), the Integrated Criminal Courts Survey (ICCS), and the Integrated Correctional Services Survey (ICSS)/Canadian Correctional Services Survey (CCSS). These files are supplemented with the Canadian Index of Multiple Deprivation (CIMD). The COSGO files are the third and final set of files produced for the Canadian-Sweden Research Collaboration on Organized Violent Threats. In collaboration with Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), Statistics Canada developed these data files to enhance our understanding of the underlying mechanisms leading to violence, and ultimately contribute to strengthening societal resilience against organized violent threats. This is part of a broader collaboration between Canada and Sweden that aims to address requirements for data resources and knowledge sharing between the two countries to develop a better understanding of the evolution of organized violence of different types. Canadian partners participating in the project include Public Safety Canada, Statistics Canada, and the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS). Data files on hate crime as well as terrorism and other related criminal activities were previously produced.
