Alaska Violent Death Reporting System


The Alaska Violent Death Reporting System (AKVDRS) is a state-based surveillance system modeled after the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). The objectives of AKVDRS are to:

  • link violent death record data from disparate sources;
  • provide timely information through rapid data retrieval;
  • describe the circumstantial and environmental factors that contribute to violent deaths; and
  • characterize perpetrators, including the relationship to the victim(s).
