Firearm-Related Deaths

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) tracks all types of firearm-related deaths. These include suicides, homicides, unintentional deaths, those related to legal intervention or war, or deaths with undetermined intent. The data can be used by community groups, healthcare providers, law enforcement, and others working to prevent firearm-related deaths. Data on this dashboard are from death certificates of Virginia residents only, including those who died out of state.

Firearm–related death data by age group, race/ethnicity, sex, health district, and intent of injury are available for download.

This dashboard is updated annually in October-November for the previous calendar year.
