1 online resource. Digital: data file.
A single downloadable .csv file provides estimates on "violent deaths" from 2004 onwards. The violent deaths indicator combines national level statistics on homicide and data on fatalities occurred in armed conflict. The database covers more than 189 countries and territories and it is kept constantly updated. Estimates on violent deaths between 2007 and 2012 are at the core of the analysis presented in the third and latest edition of the Global Burden of Armed Violence, launched in May 2015. The database combines data from a wide range of sources that report the number of people died in violent events across both conflict and non-conflict settings. Typical sources are, among others, hospitals, mortuaries, police as well as those organizations that document casualties in areas affected by armed conflict.
