National Violent Death Reporting System: Stories from the Frontlines of Violent Death Surveillance.

The original publication made possible by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2013 has been expanded thanks to funding from the Joyce Foundation. The updated publication now features nine state profiles, eight stories of typical violent deaths, and over 25 innovative ways states turn data into action.

The NVDRS: Stories from the Frontlines of Violent Death Surveillance demonstrates the power of an incident-based system to create a more complete picture of violent deaths. With 32 states currently 
receiving NVDRS funding from the CDC, this report brings increased attention to the importance of investing resources in injury and violence prevention initiatives, and the need for continued support and expansion of this innovative system for preventing violent deaths.
