About the lists
The following lists of Sept. 11 victims, compiled by the Associated Press, were up-to-date as of August 28. Boston.com will continue to update the lists as new information becomes available.
The overall death toll from the attacks, including the 19 hijackers, is 3,062 -- 2,829 at the World Trade Center, 189 in Washington and 44 in Pennsylvania.
The list of 3,005 names in the AP database does not include the 19 hijackers. It matches the death toll released by authorities at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. It differs, however, from the official trade center toll provided by the City Office of Emergency Management.
New York City's number stands at 2,819, not including the 10 hijackers. AP's total stood at 2,781 as of August 28.
City officials arrived at their total from coroner reports, death certificates and police missing reports. The AP is working to reconcile the differences with the city's list, released Aug. 19. The city intends to release an updated list.
The names and information in AP's database have been confirmed by staff reporting in the United States and overseas. Data on New York victims has been gathered from the coroner's office, death certificates, foreign consulates, airlines, companies, families, mortuaries and places of worship, and newspapers.
The 3,005 database names are divided into those confirmed dead, reported dead or reported missing:
The 2,932 confirmed dead have been confirmed by a coroner's office or the Defense Department. They also include those for whom death certificates have been issued, even if no body has been recovered.
The 48 reported dead include those whose deaths have been reported by family, employers, mortuaries, places of worship or by the airlines. The reported dead also include people for whom memorial services have been held, even if their bodies have not been recovered or positively identified.
The 25 people reported missing include those identified by family, official agencies or employers.
