National Violent Death Reporting System Coding Manual (version 3)

The NVDRS Coding Manual is a reference document to be used by state health departments for defining cases, entering data, and checking data once it is entered. It contains information about individual variables and the way the data are structured. The Coding Manual is intended to be used in conjunction with the materials provided at the coding training and the NVDRS Software Manual. Other material related to setting up a state violent death reporting system can be found in the NVDRS Implementation Manual.
