#### Response to smith

1523 or a little bit less, 1517, maybe, depending on who made the statistic.

#### Response to smith

I have the paper from the actual day of the disaster, The English Daily Mail, they say that the exact numbers were:

Passengers: 2208
Number Drowned: 1503

I think it should be no less than 1522.(Cos' I read it in a book!:D)

-- Timothy Thong (jesusaves88@hotmail.com), July 10, 2001.

I found out that there were 3500 people on board (passengers and crew members) 2780 died and 720 survived. I have heard so many different statistics that i dont know which ones are right but I think that these ones are the closest to it.

i was reading a ballad and it said there were about 1523 people dead at the end of the disaster i don't have a clue how many survived.

This may be a good subject to study in more detail, but what I'd like to know is: “Why is there such a discrepancy in the answers?” —r PS: The number of people on the ship should have been recorded in some kind of company (land bound) manifest; probably a copy exists on both coasts. As for how many died: Is there no way to find out the accurate number of survivers?

This is pointless! All the information you people have is way of acurate. Have you even noticed that all the numbers are completley different. If you rely on this information for your projects, ect. yours screwed!

this is so stupid all of your answers are totally different and when you are trying to do a 20 page essay on the titanic you need accurate info i think u shud get this sorted

76 died - 54 survived - 7585 total

The exact number of passengers on the Titanic at the time of the accident is unclear. It is known that the "official" passenger list contains inaccuracies, omissions and printing errors. The list includes names of people that were never on the ship and is missing names of people that were definitely aboard the ship. Various sources give different numbers, but their numbers only differ by about 30 people. The British Inquiry report lists the total passengers and crew as 2201. The exact number is not as important as the story they tell about the magnitude of this great maritime disaster.

Here are some statistics you may find interesting:

Percent Rescued and Lost
1st Class Passengers: 325 Total, 62.46% Rescued, 37.54% Lost
2nd Class Passengers: 285 Total, 41.40% Rescued, 58.60% Lost
3rd Class Passengers: 706 Total, 25.21% Rescued, 74.79% Lost
Total Passengers: 1316 Total, 37.92% Rescued, 62.08% Lost
Total Crew: 885 Total, 23.95% Rescued, 76.05% Lost
Total Passengers and Crew: 2201 Total, 32.30% Rescued, 67.70% Lost
