Gun Deaths By Intent
SOURCE: CDC, UNDERLYING CAUSE OF DEATH, FIVE-YEAR AVERAGE: 2015–2019.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics. WONDER Online Database, Underlying Cause of Death. A yearly average was developed using five years of the most recent available data: 2015 to 2019. CDC's database is broadly considered to be the most comprehensive sources of data on fatal firearm injuries. However, two of its intent categories—”shootings by law enforcement” and “unintentional deaths”—are estimated to be underreported. This is largely due to missing information on death certificates that may result in the misclassification of intent. The total of the intent category averages may not equal the yearly average due to rounding.

Gun Deaths Over Time in United States
?

How can there be more deaths in 2017 in California yet the rate of gun deaths is lower? The explanation for this apparent contradiction is related to population growth. The population in California grew at a faster pace than the number of people who died by guns. In other words, despite an increase of 13 total gun deaths over this ten-year period, the age-adjusted gun death rate is lower because the population is larger.

This analysis used the number of deaths of children and teenagers aged 1 to 19 by known intent—homicide, suicide, or unintentional death. The number of deaths of children age 0 to 1 are calculated separately because the leading causes of death for newborns and infants are specific to that age group.
