ABSTRACT

CDC's National Violent Death Reporting System & Vital Statistics Partners   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Document: "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) links details of violent deaths--the who, when, where, and how--and shares insights into why they occurred. NVDRS relies on information from source documents, such as death certificates, coroner/medical examiner reports (including toxicology results), and law enforcement reports, to pool anonymized data on violent deaths and their circumstances into one database. Such data pooled together are far more comprehensive than what is available elsewhere, so decision-makers and program planners may use the results to better tailor violence prevention efforts."
