dc.description Fact Sheet en_US
dc.description.abstract Each of the NCVRW Crime and Victimization Fact Sheets provides a snapshot of current research and victimization statistics in the United States....Mass casualty events—mass shootings, bombings, or other crimes with multiple fatalities—receive extensive media and policy attention due to the number of victims and the impact on their communities. While many agencies and organizations record and publish information on mass casualty events, measuring and reporting on these crimes is complicated by the absence of a commonly recognized definition. Mass casualty events continue to increase in both number and scope....The decision to include gang- or drug-related incidents, the accidental discharge of a firearm, or family- and intimate partner-related shootings further complicates the definition of a mass shooting. Mother Jones, the FBI, CRS, the MSA, and Congress do not include these incidents in their definitions, while USA Today does. (Author Text) en_US
