    The creation of the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) coding manual has been a collaborative process involving Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Violent Injury Statistics System (NVISS) and contracted software developers. CDC has taken the lead on developing the case definition, table structure, the document-based architecture of the system, and several new data elements. NVISS supplied most of the data elements and definitions based on an earlier pilot for the NVDRS. The NVISS Child Fatality Module Team developed the Child Fatality data elements that are being piloted in NVDRS. This revised version of the coding manual incorporates updates to the system and input from states and others who have been using the system since its creation. The NVDRS data elements are drawn in part from the NVISS, a pilot for the system. NVISS was developed in 1999 with the financial support of six private foundations. Without the vision and financial support of these foundations, the early work to develop the national system would not have been possible. These foundations include the Atlantic Philanthropies, the Center on Crime, Communities and Culture of the Open Society Institute, the Joyce Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation. This project is a reflection of the expertise of all the developmental partners, participating state health departments, state and local coroner/medical examiner offices and state and local law enforcement agencies.
