The news of dead migrants usually reaches big media outlets intermittently, around big incidents or in times of important policy decisions. The following table helps to put this in perspective, allowing you to sift through the entire database interactively.

As most of the events are related to boat journey, it’s not surprising that drowning is by far the most common death for migrants coming to Europe – accounting for 60% of the total incidents. Filtering for other typologies of events shows other trends. For example, in events related to detention centers, suicide and lack of medical care account for most of the reported incidents.
