Interactive Statistical Probability Chart As To The Cause Of Your Death



Interactive Statistical Probability Chart As To The Cause Of Your Death

There is a website that specializes in statistical data analysis called flowingdata.com. Someone by the name of Nathan Yau did an analysis on causes of death [brief bio from his personal website: "I'm the one writing for FlowingData. I have a PhD in statistics from UCLA, and I'm a statistician"].

He created this probability chart. How he went about this is included on the website URL with this chart:
http://flowingdata.com/2016/01/19/how-you-will-die/

The chart is about midway down the page; NOTE: it runs real fast; notice the "pause" button to the far right of where you enter your data.

FYI: for those of you who might never have heard of the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], it is an official USA govt agency and very involved in a number of USA health matters, and very often USA mainstream news media carries articles about various aspects of its work.
