The Odds of Dying chart is a visual depiction of the lifetime odds of death from a few selected causes. Within the graphic, the greater the odds of an individual dying from a given cause, the larger the representative rectangle.
Additionally, complete one-year and lifetime death odds are available in
Injury Facts 2015, pages 40-43.
These odds are statistical averages over the U.S. population. They do not reflect the odds of death for a particular person from a particular cause, which varies significantly based on a person’s lifestyle, occupation, location of residence, and many other factors.

The National Safety Council and the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions annually conducts a survey of amusement/theme parks, family entertainment centers and tourist attractions that have fixed-site rides. Injury estimates are presented and rated by ride type and severity from 2003 to 2013.
