James Wimberly updates estimates of deaths in Iraq. If you extrapolate from Lancet 2, the death toll is now over a million. Which sort of explains why the coalition won’t do counts of their own.
Elsewhere, David Kane has put an R package for the Lancet data and his own discussion of the data. One interesting thing is that 24 of the deaths from car bombs (out of 38 deaths) occured in a single incident.
