Wow, VN traffic deaths are OK.
« on: April 24, 2019, 05:29:36 PM »
someone gave me this statistics:

Vietnam: 9k deaths in traffic (95m people)
USA: 40k deaths in traffic (325m people)
Russia: 34k deaths in traffic (120m people, numbers from 2007 though)
Vietnam's situation seems ''ok'' to me in comparison, breaking it down, they have about 9,5 traffic deaths per 100k people, Thailand is listed with 38 traffic deaths per 100k.

Should you trust the statistics coming out a communist nation?

I got the data from a commenter in this video.  He sounds like he has a PHD so I think it is good.

But from Wikipedia (data from 2013):

                      death/       death/       death
                      100000     100000       total
                       people     vehicle
Vietnam            24.5          55           22,419   
China                18.8          104.5       261,367
United States    10.9          12.9           34,064
Thailand            36.2          74.6           24,237


You would also want to compare the type of vehicles involved, road conditions, safety features, type of infrastructure, population density in order to make a fair comparison.

Also, riding in a motorbike would carry less protection than in a car.
