Key PointsQuestionWhat is the burden of firearm mortality at the global, regional, and national level between 1990 and 2016 by sex and age? FindingsUsing a combination of deidentified aggregated data from vital registration, verbal autopsy, census and survey data, and police records in models for 195 countries and territories, this study estimated 251 000 (95% uncertainty interval [UI], 195 000-276 000) people died globally from firearm injuries in 2016, compared with 209 000 (95% UI, 172 000-235 000) deaths in 1990. There was an annualized decrease of 0.9% (95% UI, 0.5%-1.3%) in the global rate of age-standardized firearm deaths from 1990 to 2016. MeaningThis study provides an estimate of the global burden of firearms deaths in 2016, change in this burden from 1990, and variation in levels and rates among countries.
