Calls for an inquiry into the death toll of Iraqis caused by the 2003 war have become more insistent recently. Deaths fall into three categories: those uniformed Iraqis killed in the period between March and May 2003; civilians killed during the same period, and in the period since; and civilians (mainly) dying prematurely as a result of the breakdown of civil infrastructure from March 2003 to the present day. This article deals only with the middle category. Using the Richardson scale - an exponential measure similar to the Richter scale - and historical analogies, this statistical analysis seeks to estimate the Iraqi civilian death toll during the Coalition's bombing campaign.
