  • The Science of Death in Darfur

    As Hagan and Polloni recently write: extrapolating from limited samples to an entire population at risk is problematic. It is therefore troublesome that they failed to include the approximately (estimated) 200,000 people in Eastern Chad who fled Western Darfur—the area that the writers concentrated on. This is not an insignificant amount of people, considering the estimated total population of West Darfur of 1,660,000.
