The Homicide Survey is a census administrative survey completed for each police-reported homicide incident occurring in Canada. The Homicide Survey has collected police-reported data on the characteristics of all murder incidents, victims and accused persons since 1961 and all homicides (including murder, manslaughter and infanticide) since 1974. The Homicide Survey data are collected directly from police services. The survey captures incidents based on the reporting year — the year in which the homicide is reported to Statistics Canada. The goals of the pilot are to offer academic researchers greater access to the Homicide Survey data, to help Statistics Canada evaluate and refine confidentiality vetting rules for these data, and to improve end-user documentation.
