Profile Picture Open Data Nova Scotia

Description

Average daily count statistics of adults and youth in custody are derived from daily count statistics of adults and youth incarcerated in adult or youth correctional facilities in Nova Scotia. The average daily count is submitted to Statistics Canada and data is published for the provinces and territories on an annual basis through their Key Indicators Report (KIR) survey and CANSIM. Due to the time lag in publishing the data by Statistics Canada, however, data for the most recent year is provided by the Nova Scotia Department of Justice.
