At the age of 12, a girl has odds of dying at 1 in 7,143, which is significantly lower than the odds for a boy of the same age, who faces odds of 1 in 4,858. This difference underscores the variation in mortality risks between genders even at a young age.

Examining the Causes of Death

For a 12-year-old girl, the range of causes leading to mortality varies widely, though they occur relatively infrequently. The leading cause is suicide, with odds of 1 in 53,300, followed by car crashes at 1 in 166,016, and assault by firearm at 1 in 270,597.

Other causes include health-related issues like asthma, with odds of 1 in 325,852, and exposure to smoke, fire, and flames at 1 in 461,749. Illnesses such as flu and pneumonia also pose risks, albeit lower, with odds of 1 in 500,684 and 1 in 634,091, respectively.

Rarer causes of death at this age include bicycle and motorcycle rider accidents, plane crashes, and diseases like AIDS, each with odds surpassing 1 in a million.

Gender-Based Comparison in Risks

Comparing these risks with those faced by boys of the same age reveals interesting patterns. For instance, while the risk of suicide is the highest for both genders, it is notably higher for boys. Similarly, the risk of dying in a car crash or from an assault by firearm is also greater for boys at this age.

These statistics shed light on the various risks that 12-year-old girls face, albeit less frequently than their male counterparts. They offer a perspective on the relative safety of girls at this age but also highlight the importance of awareness and preventive measures for the less common yet serious risks they face.
