War mortality estimates : A systematic review

Patterns of mortality rates in Darfur conflict

TLDR
Large-scale mortality surveys in conflict settings—often seeking to measure mortality at a national level and over a relatively long period—have different objectives from smaller operational surveys, and cluster sampling is a default method in most humanitarian settings.
