Americans’ Experiences With Gun-Related Violence, Injuries, And Deaths
A series of logistic regressions were run to examine which demographic variables were statistically significant predictors of both reported experiences of gun-related incidents, as well as worries about a loved one being a victim of gun violence. In each model, Black and Hispanic identity remained a strong predictor as well as education and age. Younger adults and those with lower levels of education were also more likely to report both personal and familial experiences with gun violence. Running a model with only White adults, income is also a significant predictor, as those with lower levels of income are more likely to report experiences with gun-related incidents.
