I found this chart: http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/war-1900.htm
which is at least something. What data sources I have seem to suggest
that MAR didn't decrease substantially until about 1980, so the question
is whether we can discern a trend since then, after correcting for population
changes and any biases in what events are recorded in such summaries.
