Summary 

Estimates of deaths due to police violence were produced for all ages by sex, state, and race/ethnicity for the United States between 1980 and 2019. Data from the USA National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) was compared to three non-governmental, open-source databases on police violence: Fatal Encounters, Mapping Police Violence, and The Counted. Data from all sources were extracted and standardized, and a network meta-regression used to quantify the rate of under-reporting within the USA NVSS. These rates were used to inform correction factors and provide adjusted mortality estimates.
