Violence, trauma, crime and homicide data is produced regularly by governments, global political organisations, health-care providers, police forces, and pressure groups - to name but a few - and it can be a challenge to locate the most up-to-date statistics.
Child injury and homicide data for England & Wales has been produced by specialist interest groups such as the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC - child homicide data) and the Trauma Audit & Research Network (TARN - severe injury in children review 2012).
