Wolf Administration Launches Pennsylvania Violence Data Dashboard

Governor Wolf announced that the Department of Health (DOH) has launched a violence data dashboard to collect data on the scope, frequency, geography and populations affected by violence in Pennsylvania. The creation of the dashboard was a mandate in the governor’s 2019 Executive Order to Reduce Gun Violence. The executive order included collecting data on the number of victims of gun violence, rates at which gun violence occurs in locations and contributory factors. DOH will coordinate with and collect data from the Department of Human Services, Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Coalition on Crime and Delinquency, and other commonwealth entities to populate the dashboard. Data will be available by gender, race/ethnicity, age group and geography.
