The sample size was determined via Census method all of the mortality cases of T.A(n=2492). The study data were gathered from the information of the registration forms of the dead and injured, and then was analyzed by SPSS software (ver,16). In fact, mortality trend caused by T.A was reported via Regression Poisson model.
