Data and Analytics

The Small Arms Survey conducts extensive research on global trends on small arms and armed violence with the aim of providing international and national stakeholders with the data required to have an informed debate and make evidence-based policy decisions. Our established and reliable methodologies enable us to deliver data and analysis that informs the development and monitoring of international and national initiatives.

The Data and Analytics (DnA) unit's primary goal is to enable the broader small arms community (or specific regional and national partners) to use reliable and consistent information to make decisions. Projects and activities in this thematic area are primarily geared towards gathering and providing information and developing methodologies for research and analysis.

Data and Analytics projects may have a global outlook or a specific regional or national focus. Their main output may be data, information, and analysis, or new or modified methodologies.
