Violent Death Data

Violence, whether from assault or self-inflicted, takes the lives of more than five North Carolinians every day (2015). Surveillance data can improve understanding of the causes and circumstances of violent deaths. Along with data from vital records, hospital discharge and emergency department data, in N.C. there is a system called The North Carolina Violent Death Reporting System (N.C. VDRS) that provides detailed information on deaths that result from violence.
