Freakonomics SSR

Firefighters have a dangerous job. 55% of them are volunteer and the other 45% are career. 50% of the firefighters that die, die from heart attack. 30% of them die from trauma and the other 20% die from other things such as medical breathing issues. The five states with the most deaths are Pennsylvania, 36; California, 33; New York, 33; North Carolina, 31; and Texas 26. Unfortunately these are all the statistics I could find about firefighters. Thanks for reading and have a nice day! I.S.
