2013 All Transportation Death Statistics Including Passenger Ships

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is an independent Federal agency charged by Congress with determining the probable cause of transportation accidents, promoting transportation safety, and assisting victims of transportation accidents and their families.

 

The annual NTSB report on transportation related deaths compares modes of transportation related deaths within several categories, Highway, Rail, Aviation and Marine. The NTSB tallied 34,678 transportation related deaths within those categories as outlined below. These numbers include cruise ship and passenger ship deaths during vessel accidents only, not all cruise ship deaths as we feature on Cruise Ship Deaths. The documented deaths as a result of passenger ship accidents equals only 0.00051% off all transportation related deaths, only 0.00055% of deaths on highways and only 2.9 % of all marine accident deaths.
