USA Stats

I was watching a news story talking about how the USA is slipping in stats for maternal death from childbirth so i went and did some research.

Death of the mother in the USA during childbirth is around 600 a year or approx 13 per 100,000 births.

Whilst sad and devestating i personally thought thats a pretty reasonable number a more outrageous number is "Number of deaths in the USA during 2004 from gunfire..... 29,569 !!"
