*The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics releases national mortality data approximately 18 months after the end of each calendar year. The most recent data available is for 2003, released in fall 2005. Expect to see 2004 numbers here in fall 2006.
NOTE: Rates based on 20 or fewer deaths may be unstable. Use with caution.
ABOUT 1999-2003 DATA: The coding of mortality data changed significantly in 1999 from ICD-9 to ICD-10, so you may not be able to compare number of deaths and death rates from 1998 and before with data from 1999 and after. Though there were no apparent changes in the coding of firearm deaths, the National Center for Health Statistics does not recommend combining 1999-2003 data with previous years to obtain average annual numbers of death and death rates.
TABLE: Statistics compiled by Common Sense about Kids and Guns using WISQARS. WISQARS is produced by the Office of Statistics and Programming, NCIPC, CDC.
