Student Mortality Rates at Home and Abroad: Insights from Insurance Claims Data

Friday, November 15
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Baltimore

Nine years of insurance claims data from students studying abroad inform this study comparing the relative risk of mortality for U.S. college and university students while abroad with the risk of mortality while studying on the home campus. The presenters will describe their methodology and present the results, which find that students are less likely to die while participating in study abroad than they are on their home campuses. The discussion will also include an exploration of differences between male and female students and circumstances surrounding the fatalities in the data set.
