The Above Algorithm represents an accurate statistical simulation of selected Causes of Death based upon the World Health Organization's latest Data. We included Abortions in this presentation for added perspective not because we consider it a death, but because of the impact it has on population growth in certain parts of the World. These population statistics are reflected in other parts of the Site, including the individual Country Health Profiles found under World Health Rankings
OUR DATA: We use the most recent data from these primary sources: WHO, World Bank, UNESCO, CIA and individual country databases for global health and causes of death. We use the CDC, NIH and individual state and county databases for verification and supplementation for USA data.
