Living In New York, Statistically Speaking

According to the Health Department, 2006 had the lowest death rate of any year on record. Only 6.7 out of every 1,000 NYC residents died. However, there were no statistics available for the death rate among the city’s tourists. We fear the high prices must have scared to death many an unsuspecting traveler from Mayberry, Podunk and other parts unknown. If true, and the number of dead tourists grows, who'll be left to buy the Statue of Liberty ashtrays?
