Re: Smallest population able to maintain regular sacrifices?
You also need to factor in the average age of death of the population. If the life expectancy of the population is 50 years (to keep the math simple) then we'll estimate that about 2% of the population dies annually. If the rate of death by suicide is 2%, then we're talking .04% the population dying by suicide every year, way less than the 1% other people have mentioned.
