Avg. daily Coalition fatality rate during the last month: 2.6
(nearly all Americans, and excluding Iraqis)
Last year, November 2005: 2.87.
Overall daily average to date is 2.32. Total US dead as of today: 2900.
Iraqi monthly military and police fatalities: 123.
Previous military/police fatality rates
Last year, November 2005: 176.
Total Iraqi military dead: 5823.
Note that I've seen media reports suggesting the Iraqi military casualty figures are signficant undercounts.
Iraqi monthly civilian fatalities: 1,741
Last year, November 2005: 592.
To-date civilian total starting from March 2005: 20,754. Note that the civilian numbers are far less accurate than others (most likely to be greatly underestimated, or even ridiculously underestimated), but could still be useful in determining trends.
Comments: Three bad months in a row for the Coalition is enough to identify a trend. As before, Iraqi military fatality rates continue to be low, more proof they're sitting out the civil war. Also as before, civilian casualties remain terrible.
