Mortality from Road Crashes in 193 Countries: A Comparison with Other Leading Causes of Death

The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) recently released a research report "Mortality from road crashes in 193 countries: A comparison with other leading causes of death ", authored by Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle. The study compared, for each country of the world, the fatalities per population from road crashes with fatalities per population from three leading causes of death (malignant neoplasm, ischaemic heart disease, and cerebrovascular disease), and from all causes. The data, applicable to 2008, came from the World Health Organization.
