What mortality calculators tell us
Want to know when you’ll die? Mortality calculators show specific data about a person’s age, hobbies, risky behavior patterns, lifestyle, health, finances and the potential for criminal activity. There’s more research needed to predict the mortality rate of a country, but these algorithms are statistics based on trusted documents elicited from institutions such as law enforcement data, hospitals records, social media, drug and health records.
Low-income countries ranks high
In 2008, heart disease and stroke took third and fifth place as causes of death for low income countries. However, in the middle-income countries and in the high income nations, stroke and cerebrovascular related diseases take top positions as exhausting and debilitating conditions.
The reasons for the change even varies:
- A change in society is said to be one of the causes for the change in fatality rates.
- There’s a worldwide increase in the amount of overweight individuals and diabetics, which contributes to the overall rise in deaths per year.
- Diabetes is responsible for over five million diverse lives each year, so it is not a rich or poor condition. Nevertheless, more than 80 percent of diabetics reside in middle and low incomes countries.
- Too many people die from infections of the lungs, HIV/AIDS, malaria and diarrhoeal (diarrhea) diseases.
- Sadly, diarrhea attacks mainly children and it is one of the top major killers in poor countries.
- Poor water (drinking) conditions and below average sanitation solutions along with the complexities of childbirth, are claiming both the lives of the mother and child.
Natives of middle income countries live to be around 70 years old, but chronic illnesses are the countries leading killers. High income regions report that traffic accidents, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis are their number one offenders.
Western attitudes are turning from traditional menus for dinner and altering lifestyles to live longer and healthier. The 2011 census of the US population shows that age plays a significant part in contributing to diabetes and the biological process of depleting body organs, especially among Blacks or African Americans. Heart diseases make up of 23.6% of African American deaths and 24.1% among Caucasians.
China’s 2016 statistics reveal a country that is suffering with infectious illnesses and diseases. What’s more is that around 40% of those patients use prescription medicine. Males had the highest percentage of infectious diseases in Russia.
Outbreaks in underdeveloped countries
When millions upon millions of people are affected with the same virus, it’s an epidemic that hit the poorest countries first and hardest. The Zika virus, the eruption of the Ebola virus and the occurrence of MERS in Asia were devastating headliners. With the anticipated heat wave, economies in low income levels will certainly feel the severity of the climate change. In that, comes poverty and death.
Want to know when you’ll die? Naturally, countries with low incomes will suffer the most. In the poorest countries, living healthier isn’t a near possibility, especially without proper nourishment or clean drinking water. Without the proper resources and finances, people are doomed to die of infectious diseases, strokes and heart related illnesses.
