The National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) is the only state-based violent death reporting system that helps us to understand when and how violent deaths occur. NVDRS links data from vital records, coroner/medical examiner, and law enforcement agencies from multiple states to obtain the most comprehensive data available on suicides, homicides, deaths from legal intervention (i.e., a subtype of homicide where the victim is killed by law enforcement acting in the line of duty), deaths of undetermined intent, and unintentional firearm deaths.
