    Just because the estimate may be off, doesn't give you the freedom to assume that the actual number is higher.  In the absence of better evidence, you have to assume that the data you have are correct.

      I didn't assume it was higher. It was a calculational error.

      Also, I am not happy with turning human suffering into mathematical terms. Yeah, I know, government statisticians have to do that just as censuses must be taken, even though these are never precise either.
