Not surprisingly, deaths from drone strikes have also boomed.

In 2023, there were over 3,000 deaths from drone strikes, an increase of 168 per cent since 2018.

One area of improvement has been in terrorism, says the report.

Terrorism deaths peaked in 2015, hitting around 11,000, but have since fallen to around 8,500.

Although terrorism – like conflict generally – is a rare cause of death globally, many people worry about it, allowing it to loom large in their minds.

In the UK, 47 per cent of people said they worried “very much” or “a great deal” about terrorism, according to Our World in Data. 

Yet in 2021, there was just one terrorism-related death, compared to 134,802 deaths caused by cancer in England alone, Our World in Data reported.
