Data & Reporting

The Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention maintains the largest database of publicly available data on firearm variables in the United States. This database was originally established by the National Institutes of Health-funded Firearm Safety Among Children and Teens Consortium which was led by the University of Michigan.

The Institute is working to expand this database to include data on the entire lifespan over the next year. Below you can access and search the database, get information on data-related citations, and learn how you can submit your data sets into the database.
