Each year states submit their NVDRS data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC, along with many states and independent parties who have requested access to this data, publish reports on violent death incidence to better understand the cause of violent deaths, and aid public health officials and law enforcement in preventing them in the future.

A collection of state, CDC, and independent reports are listed below. Contact Angela Mickalide ( to recommend a report, research study, or publication to include on this website.

A collection of public and behind-the-scenes producess documents have also been assembled in the resource repository, which is only accessible to authorized personnel of the state programs.
