Canadian data reveal a positive correlation between the rates for parricide and criminal violence from 1962 to 1985. These results run counter to Young's 1993 results and challenge Megargee's (1982) hypothesis according to which factors influencing violent crimes do not similarly affect intrafamilial violence.
