Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

people are already picking it apart, even thought it’s a rerun of an article from 2013 ( http://www.startrek.com/article/did-redshirts-really-die-more-often-on-tos

The main issue, the number they use for redshirts is the technical manual crew info, not the on screen seen ones.  As a percentage of SEEN crew, it should still favor redshirts.

I wonder what the mortality rate was for gold shirts on TNG?
