If you’ve ever wished for a chance to know when, where, and how you'll die, then this is for you.
Nathan Yau, the brains behind the Flowing Data website, has developed an interactive graphic that visualizes how and when you are most likely to die. He gathered the statistics from death certificates at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s database, which looked at the underlying causes of death in the United States between 1999 and 2014.
Yau says: "Enter your sex, race, and age. Each dot represents one of your simulated lives, and as each year passes, more of your simulated selves pass away. Color corresponds to cause of death, and the bars on the right keep track of the cumulative percentages.
"By the end, you’re left with the chances that you will die of each cause. Try shifting age down to zero and watch the rate of change. The main point, which is what you’d expect, is that mortality rate is much lower in the earlier years of life than in the older years. But, if you do die at a younger age, it’s much more likely due to something external rather than a disease.
"You can also look at it the other way. Shift age to the older years, and let the simulations run. You’re much more likely to die of a disease rather than something external. Shift past 80 years, and it’s over 40 percent chance the cause will be circulatory, regardless of demographic group."
