Global Violent Deaths: Interactive Maps and Charts of Armed Violence Indicators

The Small Arms Survey tracks statistics on violent deaths and compiles them in its Global Violent Deaths (GVD) database. Within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), states have pledged to ‘[p]romote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels’. The first target identified under this goal, Target 16.1, commits all states to ‘[s]ignificantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere'.

The GVD database provides a tool for assessing progress in implementing Target 16.1. It contains data from 2004 and includes direct conflict deaths and homicide data sets as well data on violent deaths by firearms and female victims of lethal violence. The database served as the backbone of the Global Burden of Armed Violence reports, the Global Violent Deaths 2017 report, and the Briefing Paper 'Darkening Horizons: Global Violent Deaths Scenarios, 2018—30'. Data will be updated and shared once a year.
