    Women as a whole had a 53% better chance of survival on the Titanic (1912 disaster).
    Women of reproductive age were even better off.
    Children were 15% more likely to have survived than adults. (Lower difference than might have been expected given the 'women and children first' social norm.)
    Crew members had an 18% higher probability of surviving. (Information advantage? Access to resources?)
    Fitness and cultural background appeared to matter.
    First class passengers had a 40% better chance of surviving than those in third class (segregated cabins deep inside the hull).
    Americans had a higher survival rate than all other nationalities!
