Tracking School Shootings

by Morgan Stevens

Researchers at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School have created a dataset tracking every incident since 1970 in which someone brandished or fired a gun at a school or a bullet hit school property. It consists of 2,062 incidents and includes information on the school, the location of the incident, the background of the perpetrators, the ages and injuries of 2,615 victims, the type of gun used, and a summary of the incident. 

Get the data.
