Paticipation in NVDRS

Currently, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico are part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS).

With all states now having joined NVDRS, the mission of the National Violence Prevention Network has evolved to ensure the continued funding and implementation of the program, expand awareness of its uses, and further enhance the ability of national and state health officials and law enforcement to use NVDRS data to inform policy, prevent violent deaths and save lives.

NVDRS by State

Overseeing departments, relevent reports, and participation history are listed below for each state, district and territory. For an up-to-date list of current state program coordinators and contact information, see the CDC NVDRS State Profiles page. State administrators may access the resource repository (password required) to view a wide range of published reports and internal documents developed by various state programs.
