Division of Violence Prevention Annual Report, 2011
Violence is a key public health problem that prevents people in our nation from living life to the fullest. In 2009, homicides and suicides accounted for one out of every 50 US deaths. Although violence impacts people of all ages, races, and genders in the United States (US), it is a leading killer of our children and youth. Young people ages 10 to 24 are disproportionately impacted by violence with more than 5000 homicide deaths in 2009, an average of about 14 each day.
