A Colorful Graph That Shows Most Likely Cause Of Death By Age

Colorful graphs always look like a lot of fun, but then you find out what sort of statistic the graph is depicting and the bright and cheery colors don't really matter anymore.

The wonderful rainbow colored waves on this stack area graph by Nathan Yau represent a dark and dreary statistic- how you're most likely to die, according to your sex, race and age group.

Most of the information isn't really that surprising- people under 30 are most likely to die from an external cause, while our 60+ senior years are rife with cancer.

What is surprising is the spike in cancer rates for both boys and girls under ten, and how over 80% of men who died at age 18 died from external causes. Live fast die young indeed.
