The Standardised Mortality Ratio for non citizens was 246.6% whereas the Standardised Mortality Ratio of citizens was 79.3%. The Industries Standardised Accident fatality Ratio for non citizens was 246.0%, and that for the citizens was 79.4%. 47.0% of the non citizens died within four weeks of employment compared to 19.6% of the citizens.
