The Explainer

This area of GVA is to provide explanations as to why we do some of the things we do and to provide a more in-depth explanation for some of our more common FAQs.


Suicides are collected through the CDC and, because of privacy and CDC policy, they are only available at this time as an aggregate number, without detail. Therefore, there is not an associated table with our normal GVA level of granularity and geolocation . We are working to resolve this but it will be at some point in the future and not under our control. Sorry for this inconvenience.
