Violence, trauma, crime and homicide data is produced regularly by governments, global political organisations, health-care providers, police forces, and pressure groups - to name but a few - and it can be a challenge to locate the most up-to-date statistics.

For example, the United Nations has produced a comprehensive Global study on homicide whilst in England and Wales the Office of National Statistics releases annual crime and violence statistics.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides fatal injury data, and accidental injury data.

Child injury and homicide data for England & Wales has been produced by specialist interest groups such as the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC - child homicide data) and the Trauma Audit & Research Network (TARN - severe injury in children review 2012).
