The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

Liverpool University Press

This chapter tests the conclusions made over the course of the journal by studying the statistical likelihood of a passenger surviving the sinking of the ship. It is based around factors including class, gender, family, and age. The data is contrasted with Wyn Wade’s hypothesis that third class citizens had been conditioned throughout their lives to give up hope, and Walter Lord’s hypothesis that the ship’s design prevented third class escape. It confirms that the data matches the assertions made across previous chapters: the bias of the ship’s authorities toward the first and second classes mirrors the lower survival rate of third class men and women alike. It also provides the statistical equations used to formulate this conclusion.

Keywords:   Logistic Regression Analysis, Wyn Wade, Walter Lord, Titanic Survival Rates
