Does the risk of violent death differ for men and women in conflict and nonconflict settings, and across regions and countries? Does it change over the course of a person’s life? And are women targeted because they are women? In other words, is such violence gender-based? Through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the international community has committed to reducing all forms of violence and related deaths, and to eliminating violence against women and girls. It has also undertaken to ensure the safety of public spaces. Achieving these targets requires a detailed mapping of patterns and risk factors for lethal violence. The collection and analysis of data related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is still in its infancy, but some broad trends and patterns can be identified nevertheless. This Research Note is the third in a series that presents the latest information from the Small Arms Survey’s database on violent deaths. It analyses available information on violent deaths, disaggregated by sex.
