Statistics for casualties to ships over 2000 gross tons are given for 1975 and added, in the case of collisions, to previous statistics for the years 1964-1974, so as to give collision-derived casualties. These are differentiated for tanker and non-tanker types, and depending on whether the ship was the struck or striking vessel. The main findings are that about one-fifth of struck non-tankers sink as the result of a collision, and about one-third of struck tankers catch fire or explode.
