AP: New Tally of Deaths in Iraq Match Lower Estimates
27 April 2009 2:23 pm
Offering new data on the controversial question of how many violent deaths have happened in Iraq since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, the Associated Press has obtained an Iraqi government tally that has never been made public. According to officially filed death certificates, 87,215 Iraqi citizens have died due to violence since 2005. The number is close to estimates of violent death based on media reports and a large household survey conducted by the World Health Organization and the Iraqi government—and far from the much larger estimate made in a 2006 Lancet study that had ignited a firestorm about its research methodology and its data.
