11/11/18 Andrea Carboni on an Accurate Estimate of the Death Toll in Yemen

by | Nov 12, 2018 | Interviews | 10 comments

Andrea Carboni from ACLED Data comes on the show to talk about their casualty estimates for the war in Yemen. “10,000” is the number that has been used for the last few years, but that’s exactly why it can’t possibly be right. ACLED estimates that there have actually been at least 50,000 combatant plus civilian deaths, but that is a very conservative estimate and the number is likely much higher, perhaps around 80,000. Of course, accurate counts are difficult, particularly in remote and rural parts of the country.
