    ... has released a firm estimate on ...

    Hello.

    BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Taiwan mudslide death toll rises
    This is the first time the government has released a firm estimate on the number of people they believe might have been killed in Hsiaolin village.

    Would it be correct to use of instead of on?

    Thank you.

    Yes, I'd prefer 'of'.
