Anderson discusses excess deaths under Stalin with BBC

a PSC In The News reference

"How many people did Stalin kill?" - BBC Radio. 02/19/2018.

In this interview, Barbara Anderson discusses how demographers calculate death tolls by regime, and in particular under Stalin's regime in the Soviet Union (mid-1920s-1953). Anderson explains the difference between estimating excess deaths and population deficits, and what kinds of population shifts during Stalin's regime are most directly attributable to his actions and policies.

Her interview starts at 9:45 on video.
