Violent Deaths in the Netherlands
Definition and Selection Criteria
In the Netherlands, official mortality figures often only include individuals who at the time of death were listed in the Municipal Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie personen, or BRP). As a result, non-residents and others not listed in the BRP at the time of death in the Netherlands could be excluded from one statistical table, but included in another.
To allow adjustment for any such discrepancies, GunPolicy.org provides a link to each source, most of which include notes on methodology. Please consider the notes published by the original author before choosing which figures to cite.
