U.S. Gun Deaths, 2013, 2010 Periscopic, Dino Citraro


Using data from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Report, this data exploration tool visualizes the gun murders that took place in 2010, the most recent year for which data is available.

The Uniform Crime Report includes voluntarily-reported data from police precincts across the country, and represents more than 285 million U.S. inhabitants—94.6% of the total population, containing details of each person who was killed, including their age, gender, race, relationship to killer, and more.

What the dataset does not contain is an assessment of the potential life that was stolen from these individuals as a result of their murder.

To calculate that, we used the World Health Organization’s UNSD Demographic Statistics, and performed an age prediction weighted according to the age distribution of U.S. deaths, paired with a likely cause of
death at that age.
