Abstract:Death rates for nonmotor vehicle related accidents, heart disease, and murder were obtained from the U.S. Indian Health Service for all 11 health service areas. In contrast to predictions derived from Tabachnick and Klugman's hypothesis that the amount of death instinct per capita in different regions should be constant, no statistically significant negative correlations were found, for these three variables. These findings replicate results, from earlier studies using Native and non-Native American populations.
