dc.description.abstract The annual study…analyzes unpublished data from the California Department of Justice Supplementary Homicide Report (SHR) [Note: some information varies by county, depending on how local law enforcement codes certain information, such as gang involvement]. This is the fifth consecutive year that the VPC has released Lost Youth. The study ranks California’s counties by their homicide victimization rates for young people 10 to 24 years old; per capita homicide rates for specific races ages 10 to 24 years old determined by the Violence Policy Center using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s WISQARS (Web-Based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) database. The study finds that homicide — predominantly involving a firearm — was the second leading cause of death for California youth and young adults ages 10 to 24. For this age group, homicide was the leading cause of death for blacks, the second leading cause of death for Hispanics, and the fourth leading cause of death for whites and Asian/Pacific Islanders. Firearms — especially handguns — were by far the most common weapons used to kill youth and young adults ages 10 to 24. Statewide, of the homicides for which the murder weapon could be identified, 83 percent of homicide victims died by gunfire. Study available in English and Spanish.
