One correction, the rate for pilots is 92.4 deaths per 100,000 person-years (technically, it lists 109 deaths among what then must be 117,965 persons at risk in the calendar year 2004), which works out to:

92.4/100000=0.000924=0.0924% ~ 0.1% (not 0.01% as in your original post)

I'm sure there's a more sophisticated statistical analysis we might do here, but I'm pressed for time.

Hey Brendan, did Google stop indexing your site or something? I'm trying to Google brendan-nyhan.com for wall street journal editorial page and getting only other sites. Like http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&lr=&c2coff=1&sitesearch=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.brendan-nyhan.com&q=%22wall+street+journal%22+editorial+site%3Abrendan-nyhan.com&btnG=Search , which is a link you gave in another post to search your blog for posts on the topic, doesn't return anything any more.

Sadly, yes - Google dropped me in March, and except for a brief one-week reappearance, I don't seem to exist in their database. I don't know why. They certainly index content a lot more obscure than this blog. Anyway, in the meantime, please use the Technorati and Rollyo site search boxes on the left to look for past content.
