Sometimes you just have to spell it out. The chart below I developed is based on Ontario’s own data, using US death rates stats and both their given populations. I used well-known formulas that are available on most statistical sites. It is important to understand, these odds are based on a one-year period, so you have to interpret the chart as there is a one in (the number) chance of dying over a one-year period. So, when it comes to those of the population, not at risk, there is little to be concerned about. 1 plus 1 is always 2, even if it hurts your feelings.
Odds of Dying
Published by Mark's Deep Thoughts
As a naturally curious person with an analytical mindset, I have found myself drawn to the complexities of data presentation and the impact it has on our decision-making processes. I am particularly intrigued by the potential for mismatched framing to mislead in areas as diverse as health, politics, and finance. Beyond the desire to access accurate information, I believe in the importance of clear communication and aim to help others grasp the nuances of absolute and relative risks. Continual learning is a cornerstone of my philosophy, and I strive to stay updated with current events. This is reflected in my active participation in discussions on various topics, ranging from the pharmaceutical industry to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. My hope is that my ability to think critically and commitment to uncovering the truth can offer something of value to readers. Please note that while I strive for accuracy and clarity, I'm always open to other perspectives and willing to engage in respectful discourse to broaden my understanding and appreciation of the complexities around us.
