The aim of countingcasualties.org is to serve as a forum for members of the civilian casualty recording and estimation community to share, discuss, debate, and hopefully to begin to resolve the wide variety of methodological and theoretical challenges they face on a daily basis.  This site is hosted and moderated by faculty members from Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pittsburgh.  We do not have any particular stake or position in the debates that take place on this site.  Our only goal is to facilitate interaction that advance the science of casualty recording and estimation.  This site grew out of a U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) funded conference that was held in October 2009 at Carnegie Mellon University.
