Sentence of the Day

In low-income countries, road traffic accidents account for 3.7 percent of
deaths, twice as high as deaths due to malaria.

From Chris Blattman.  By my calculations (here and here) road traffic accidents account for about 1.68% of deaths in the United States so there is certainly room for improvement in low-income countries although it would be important to know whether it is the driving, the roads, or the health care most amenable to such improvement.
