Your Risk of Death Chart

Your Risk of Death

From the Jounal of the National Cancer Institute:

“To make sense of the disease risks they face, people need basic facts about the magnitude of a particular risk and how one risk compares with other risks. Unfortunately, this fundamental information is not readily available to patients or physicians. We created simple one-page charts that present the 10-year chance of dying from various causes according to age, sex, and smoking status.”

From this data Alexis Madrigal has created an interactive chart that can help calculate your risk of death at a certain age.check out the interactivity here
