Mortality Statistics

As learned from Matt Rosenberg at About.com/geography, there is a website out there, nationmaster.com which has some fascinating information.

Specifically, for this post, mortality statistics by country. What are you most likely to die of? Use the drop down menus to parse the data!

I realize that mortality statistics are inherently serious, but I couldn’t help but wonder (such as with the linked graph) how one manages to die from flatulence?

The list of causes of death is extensive. A glance at it is worth a second or two.
