Data Notes:

  • All data presented in the HealthSTATs page is based on calculations by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. To determine aggregate data and calculation for Simcoe Muskoka, a police service boundary file provided from Statistics Canada was used to understand the total coverage of the above police services for Simcoe Muskoka. Based on this file, the following detachments were excluded from the overall data due to the police areas not having any permanent population:
    • Orillia (Headquarters), Ontario, Ontario Provincial Police
    • New Tecumseth, Ontario, Ontario Provincial Police, rural
  • Overall, the UCR aggregate data covers 99% of the total population for Simcoe Muskoka. 22% of the total population of Essa is covered by the Canadian Military Police, which do not participate in the survey. The entire population for Christian Island 30/30A is covered under Anishinabek Police Services which covers 19 First Nations reserves across Ontario, therefore this police service was excluded as well.
  • The UCR CMA’s have been modified from the Official Statistics Canada CMAs to fit police boundaries. The Barrie CMA includes the City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil and the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury (instead of Springwater). The Barrie CMA corresponds to Barrie Police, municipal and South Simcoe police services. See Statistics Canada CMA Methodology.
