Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL)
Note Regarding Unintentional Firearm Deaths in 2014
There was a coding error in the 2014 file that increases the number of unintentional firearm deaths (W32-W34: Accidental discharge of firearms) substantially in some states. The error was not technically isolated to any particular state, but because of the nature of the error, data from some states (TN, NC, MA) were affected more than others in 2014. Results for 2014 unintentional firearm deaths should be interpreted with caution.
