Iraqi Dead May Total 600,000, Study Says (head line)
BAGHDAD, Oct. 10 — A team of American and Iraqi public health researchers has estimated that 600,000 civilians have died in violence across Iraq since the 2003 American invasion, the highest estimate ever for the toll of the war here. The figure breaks down to about 15,000 violent deaths a month, a number that is quadruple the one for July given by Iraqi government hospitals and the morgue in Baghdad and published last month in a United Nations report in Iraq. That month was the highest for Iraqi civilian deaths since the American invasion.

But it is an estimate and not a precise count, and researchers acknowledged a margin of error that ranged from 426,369 to 793,663 deaths.

OMFG error range of 426,369 to 793,663 deaths???? 300,000 ppl plus margin of error?

This is rediculious, other much more responsible studies such as (look at the site u think they have an agenda?) put the nimimum nuber at 43937 and the max at 48783
Nearly 25,000 civilians have died violently in Iraq since the US-led invasion in March 2003, a report says. reported in July 2005

-How many ppl do you think have heard this number?
-How many do you think have hearder that it is a SURVEY given to ppl in iraq? do you think that if an Anti us person in Iraq was given the survey that they might fudge the number just a little bit?
