Famine seems to have killed more people on the planet then disease itself.

If you wanted to accurately track the rate of disaster change, you'd basically need to get a lot of people to look back for a century in local newspapers, all over the world, or in churchyard/cemetary records.. It wouldn't be absolutely 100% accurate, but if you had a massive group doing it, worldwide, you'd probably get a better picture. You could specify natural disasters, and man made disasters, and say, a minimum death number of around 100..

With enough data, you could figure out if deaths from natural or manmade disasters are in fact increasing or not..

Although, given that the population is much larger now, it's plausible to suggest that if you have 10000 people in an area that 100 years ago only had 1000 people, there will naturally be more deaths from disaster, since there are more targets for death, not to mention the higher possibility of those people causing accidents.
