Background & Challenge
Each year, Everytown Research & Policy updates their Mass Shootings database, a straightforward accounting of incidents that “haunt our collective conscience,” in Everytown’s words.
When Everytown Research & Policy began tracking mass shootings after the Sandy Hook Elementary killings in 2012, no common definition of a mass shooting existed. News coverage and other research kept expanding, leading to a range of definitions.
In 2023, Everytown — the research arm of Everytown for Gun Safety — expanded their definition of mass shootings, which dramatically increased their number. The team also wanted to suggest proven solutions for preventing future tragedies. As the methodology for collecting the data was a major change from past years, it seemed like the right opportunity to fundamentally rethink and reimagine the visual approach for communicating mass shootings data.
