  •  contractors deaths (none)
    If you go to this linked text website and click on the contractors tab you will find a list of 236 currently confirmed dead contractors with fairly extensive information as to who they were working for, where they died, how they died and a link to a report giving some details. About 80 or so of the list are Americans and there is a large mix of nationalities included. The principal unrecorded casualties are the Turks, the Jordanians and the Iranians - this is largely because the compilers of the site are confined to English-language sources. So deaths reported in Arabic, Turkish, Kurdish or Farsi media will not be picked up.

    The count is acknowledged to be an undercount.
