Odds of Dying

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.
