Infographic: The Monetary Value of a Human Life August 5, 2012
- Japan places the highest value on a human life, spending $11,728,000 to save a single life through improvements in public safety.
- South Korea spent the least, at a measly $878,000.00 per life saved.
- Health insurance companies value life at $50,000 per year of quality life, a depressingly low number compared to what government entities will pay. Keep your workforce healthy with proper Health & Wellness training.
- The families of suicide bombers receive just $25,000 per suicide.
- While the families that lossed a loved one on 9/11 received an average of $2.1 million per death, families of fallen soldiers receive a maximum of just $400,000. Rush Limbaugh did an interesting piece about this huge disparity back in 2002.
