patient for pages to load our figures our pulled from the
database in real time - ISAF figurers from yearly summaries.
For the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 we
have query pages created enabling you to search the Country,
State/Area, Location, Activity, and the Injury of shark attack
related incidents with links to our News Archive enabling you to
read about each incident of interest returned from your queries.
To show how only a portion of the incidents are used by other
sources as mentioned on the front page. The years 2006, 2007, and 2008 you can compare the
differences between what is being reported and the “shark
attack” numbers produced by other sources. A good place to start
would be the year 2008 and enter "Fatal" in the Injury Field, then check
the ISAF 2008 Shark Attack Summary.
For some reason they stopped providing an attack summary in
Location Total pages quickly display how many
incidents have occurred at either a location and/or year.
The totals displayed on these pages are
calculated by the Total number of incidents, number of injuries,
number of people harassed, number of people who either died
and/or were scavenged by sharks, Some places or years may have
additional columns displaying boating accidents mostly, where
several people may have involved in the same incident.
General Statistic pages - These may include "Time
of Day", "Average Age", "Injuries", or answer questions like are
you more likely to be bitten on the left side of your body or
right side, are surfers more likely bitten on the hands or feet?
Remember each time a new incident is added these
figures will change.
