Dual-domain analysis of gun violence incidents in the United States.

  title={Dual-domain analysis of gun violence incidents in the United States.},
  author={Nick James and Max Menzies},
  volume={32 11},
This paper applies new and recently introduced approaches to study trends in gun violence in the United States. We use techniques in both the time and frequency domain to provide a more complete understanding of gun violence dynamics. We analyze gun violence incidents on a state-by-state basis as recorded by the Gun Violence Archive. We have numerous specific phenomena of focus, including periodicity of incidents, locations in time where behavioral changes occur, and shifts in gun violence…
