TEXAS — The number of people killed in plane crashes in the U.S. since 1980 has more than doubled to 13,500, a new study suggests.
That’s a rate of 1.9 deaths per 100,000 people.
That’s about twice as many as in the last decade.
The U.K.-based crash research firm CrashPlan says there were 10 fatal plane crashes last year, more than triple the total from 1980.
But the number of fatalities in the other countries with the highest rates of fatal crashes is much smaller: 2,000.
The study by CrashPlan found that the U, China, India and the Philippines all had higher death rates than the U of A in the 1980s.
The U of B, for example, had just under 4,000 fatal crashes in 1980.
That figure dropped to 3,500 last year.
The deaths are attributed to the fact that the plane crashes tend to be smaller, and less dangerous than those in other parts of the world.
One of the reasons for the trend is the way the airlines are flying.
In the 1980-90s, airlines operated about 50 percent of all domestic flights in the world, according to a 2009 report from the American Airlines Association.
Today, the figure is about 20 percent, according the group.
While it’s true that fewer people are on airplanes today than it was in the ’80s, that’s partly because people are driving less, not because of more cars on the roads, said Steve Bell, a former Air Canada CEO who is now a consultant to the CrashPlan group.
But the overall death rate in the countries studied has been declining over the last 20 years, even though people have become more physically fit and have better medical care.
“People have gotten healthier and safer,” Bell said.
“There are more people living in urban areas, and people have more leisure time.
It’s not just that people have gotten stronger.”
For example, the average life expectancy in the United States has risen about 20 years from about 77 in the early 1980s to 84 in 2008, according an analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The decline is mostly due to a reduction in cardiovascular disease, which is linked to the number and severity of heart attacks and strokes.
It is also linked to an increase in smoking.
The number and frequency of car crashes are also falling, although the data is not yet complete.
The research team also looked at the effects of air travel on mental health, particularly depression.
People in the study who lived in areas with fewer air traffic restrictions had a lower risk of suicide than those living in areas where air traffic was allowed.
The researchers say it’s difficult to measure how people would fare in an air crash, but they suggest it could be better for them if they could take some time to reflect on what they’ve experienced and then figure out how to better cope.
