Proportion of Gun Death in Armed Conflict
Definition and Selection Criteria
The reported, or estimated proportion or rate of deaths resulting directly from armed conflict which involve a firearm.
Such estimates are commonly made in relation to a limited period of armed conflict. Extrapolation to a longer time frame can be problematic.
Where the rate is calculated by GunPolicy.org, a matched population estimate is also cited.
