Maps and statistics are a great combination for nerds like us

Here's another map/statistics site for your viewing pleasure: Worldmapper's Cause of Death Maps.  These maps use data from 2002, so, for example, Iraq doesn't figure very heavily in the war deaths map, but the disease maps should still be basically representative.

Of course, Worldmapper is not all about death.  They also have a whole bunch of other maps like work, income, communication, and pollution.  Check them out.

Do they shoot schyzophreniac in India or what ?

Artifact?

Some of the numbers, particularly for the more uncommon events, might be an artifact of different practices in how cause of death is classified.
