Alcohol-related traffic fatalities in the US and other countries.

Histogram of alcohol-related traffic fatalities in the US and other countries. The vertical axis shows ten countries sequenced by death rates. The horizontal axis shows alcohol-related traffic deaths as fatalities per million population annually. Data are from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Road Safety Annual Report 2015 authored by the International Traffic Safety Data and Analysis Group (IRTAD) and available at the following website: http://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/transport/road-safety-annual-report-2015_irtad-2015-en. The death rates were calculated from Table 1.3 of the report and individual country alcohol profiles. The results show high rates of alcohol-related traffic fatalities in the US relative to other countries.
