Team Decision Making…The New They'll Never Take Us Alive!!

The top fifteen causes of death in the United States in 1997 in alphabetical order. The data are based on an annual review of death certificates. Your task is to rank them in decreasing order of number of deaths caused each year. Place the number 1 next to the one that causes the most deaths, the number 2 by the next, and so forth.

To Group Members: TASKS

1.Individually determine the ranking.

2.Determine one ranking for the group.

3.Every group member must be able to explain the rationale for the group's ranking.

4.When your group finishes (each member has signed), (a) record your estimated number of fatalities in the U.S. for each, and then (b) compare your ranking with that of another group.
