Map data for the New York City subway system, published by the New Yorkers for Public Health Network, shows the largest number of fatalities in the entire country.
While deaths on the subway are fairly low, a large number of subway fatalities are the result of a fatal car crash, a medical emergency or a collision with a person who has fallen off a subway platform.
The average number of people killed on the city’s subway system each day is 6.5, which is about a third of the average for the country, according to the NYC subway map.
It is also the second highest per capita number of total deaths on any subway system in the United States.
It’s also the fourth highest number of pedestrian deaths in the country.
The city’s other subway systems, including the Long Island Rail Road and the Orange Line, have significantly higher pedestrian fatalities.
The New York metropolitan area is home to more than 4.4 million people, the New England region is home and the New Jersey and New York area together have more than half the population.
The number of Metro-North Railroad employees who died on the job was 3,633 in 2015, the most of any metropolitan area in the U.S. Metro-South Railroad employee fatalities were 2,056, with Metro-West Railroad employees, including those on the Norfolk Southern Railroad, the second-highest.
The numbers on the New Orleans-New Orleans and Washington, D.C.-area subway maps are slightly lower, with 1,077 fatalities, the fourth-lowest in the nation.
The most common causes of subway deaths are falls and injuries, with people being injured in accidents at a rate that’s more than double the national average.
A majority of deaths are suicides, according a report released Tuesday by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
About 40 percent of the fatalities were in people who had been hospitalized for more than two days, according the report.
The American Academy also notes that the city has a high rate of traffic accidents.
