The committee reinforces recommendations made by past National Research

Council committees and others to support the development and maintenance

of the National Violent Death Reporting System and the National Incident-

Based Reporting System. These data systems are designed to provide

information that characterizes violent events. No single system will provide

data that can answer all policy questions, but the necessary first step is to

collect accurate and reliable information to describe the basic facts about

violent injuries and deaths. The committee is encouraged by the efforts of the

Harvard School of Public Health’s Injury Control Research Center pilot data

collection program and the recent seed money provided to implement a Violent

Death Reporting System at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
