Data from Mother Jones’ Investigation: Children Killed by Guns Since Newtown

The full data set from our study of 194 cases over the past year.

A year after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Mother Jones has analyzed the subsequent deaths of 194 children ages 12 and under who were reported in news accounts to have died in gun accidents, homicides, and suicides. They are spread across 43 states, from inner cities to tiny rural towns. The data collected covers the period from Dec. 15, 2012 to Dec. 10, 2013.
