While automobile safety has greatly improved over the last several decades, bringing the overall fatality
rates down with it, motorcycle fatality
rates have not declined.
This finding confirms the observations from previous studies showing that virus load and patient age are associated with EVD case fatality
2010; Kellar and Schmidlin 2012); ii) many studies are case specific or are restricted to the analysis of fatality
data obtained from a limited number of flood events in specific regions (e.g., Staes et al.
The effects of quantified targets on fatality
reductions have been researched several times [8-11].
A total of 244 casualties in Balochistan (188 dead and 56 injured), 609 casualties (497 dead and 112 injured) in FATA, 202 casualties (127 fatalities, 75 injured) in KP, 234 casualties in Punjab (116 dead and 118 injured), 321 casualties (280 dead and 41 injured) in Sindh, as well as one fatality
each in Islamabad and Gilgit Baltistan were recorded during this quarter.
During 2003-2013, the number of work-related fatalities in the oil and gas extraction industry increased 27.6%, with a total of 1,189 deaths; however, the annual occupational fatality
rate significantly decreased 36.3% (p<0.05) during this 11-year period.
Statistics released by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) indicate that pedestrian fatalities dropped from 9.5 fatalities per 100,000 of population in 2007 to seven fatalities per 100,000 people in 2010 and dropped further in 2014 to its lowest rate of one fatality
per 100,000 population.
Using data from 2011 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), the overall occupationally-related fatality
rate in the United States was 3.5 deaths per 100,000 workers; this includes all types of work across all sectors.
“All of this happening while the most recent National fatality
data showed significant reductions in total fatal motor vehicle crashes down 20%,” says Alfred Crancer, Jr., a retired research analyst for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
What is even more alarming is that fatality
rates are increasing over time, indicating the failure of the solutions that have been tried thus far to limit the hemorrhage of innocent lives.
rate per 100,000 population was pegged at 25.00.
Preliminary data from the Mine Safety and Health Administration indicates that, in 2012, mining fatality
rates reached an all-time tow for the second straight year.
