  • Description:
    Each year, about 55,000 violent deaths occur in this country and cost the United States $60 billion in medical care and lost productivity. Tragically, more than 38,000 people die by suicide in the United States each year. Homicide claims another 16,000 people in this country annually. We know these numbers can be reduced. To stop violent deaths from happening in the first place, we must first know the facts. CDC’s National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) is a state-based surveillance system that pools information about the “who, when, where, and how” from data on violent deaths to provide insights on “why” they occur. To answer the questions surrounding these deaths, NVDRS: Links records to describe in detail the circumstances that may contribute to a violent death, including health, financial, and other stressors; Identifies violent deaths occurring in the same incident to help describe the circumstances of multiple victim homicides or homicides followed by the suicide of the suspect; Provides timely preliminary information on violent deaths; and Characterizes the relationship of the victim to the suspect. 2/14/13 – date from document properties
