These numbers are based on statistics of those who are in a pool of workers in a particular job. If the pool is 100,000 + the statistics are more
inline with a statistically significant number.. Like the Astronauts being at #2 when in actuality there have been about 550 people trained to be
either astronauts or cosmonauts, and 30 have died; therefore their #2 ranking.
Another thing we hear all the time is how dangerous a police officers job is (and it can be depending on city and location) well according to this
compiled data your landscaper runs across some really bad trees and bushes... maybe more respect is due !
Anyway figured some might find this interesting..
13 of every 100,000 full-time employees in a bar or drinking establishment die each year.
15 of every 100,000 full-time landscapers do (the same number as police officers).
25 of every 100,000 full-time truck drivers die on the job.
