Figure 5: Property and Drug Offence Rate (per 100,000 population) Canada, 1980-2000

This is a line graph that illustrates the property and drug offence rate per 100,000 population from 1980 to 2000.

There are two Y axes. The left Y axis is for the property offence rate, measured in rate per 100,000 population and increases in increments of 1,000 from 0 to 7,000. The right Y axis is for the drug offence rate, measured in rate per 100,000 population and increases in increments of 100 from 0 to 400.

The X axis is divided in years from 1980 to 2000.

Two lines are demonstrated. One line shows the property offence rate and another line shows the drug offence rate.

The line for the property offence rates shows an increase from 5,444 offences per 100,000 population in 1980 to a high of 6,160 in 1991, decreasing to a low of 4,070 in the year 2000.

The line for the drug offence rate shows a decrease from 303 offences per 100,000 population in 1980 to a low of 198 in 1993, and gradually increasing to 286 in 2000.
