In this section, we discuss several basic features that data on firearm

ownership and violence ought to exhibit, individually or in combination,

in order for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to better

understand the role of firearms in violent injury and death, both selfand

other-inflicted. In particular, the following qualities of data sets are

minimally necessary for credible research and evaluation on firearm

violence: representativeness, accuracy, comprehensiveness, standardization,

and timeliness.
