Mortality in Iraq Associated with the 2003–2011 War and Occupation: Findings from a National Cluster Sample Survey by the University Collaborative Iraq Mortality Study

Figure 3

Estimated crude death rates (and 95% uncertainty intervals) by sex and 2-y intervals from household reports in the University Collaborative Iraq Mortality Study, with plotted estimates from other studies.

Estimates of the differences in male and female death rates in households over the period 2001–2011, based on interviewing 1,960 household heads across Iraq. Mortality estimates from other studies are plotted as point estimates for comparison purposes [30][32]. The first two time intervals are not strictly 2 y long, in order to align the first interval dividing point with the start of the war in March 2003; the survey concluded July 2, 2011, so the final bar reflects only half of the year. PY, person-years.
