At age 18, a young man's odds of dying are calculated to be 1 in 873. It's interesting to note how this number compares to an 18-year-old woman, whose odds of dying are significantly less, being 1 in 2,442.
An 18-year-old man has a higher risk from several causes of death. These include an assault by firearm (1 in 4,628), suicide (1 in 5,059), or a car crash (1 in 10,672). Less common, but still significant, are deaths from a motorcycle rider accident (1 in 32,105), or Coronavirus (1 in 73,173).
These odds shift dramatically with age and sex. For instance, the odds of an 18-year-old man dying in a car crash is 1 in 10,672, while for a 16-year-old boy, this risk increases to 1 in 7,482. The risk also changes with gender; an 18-year-old woman's risk of dying in a car crash is significantly lower at 1 in 22,913.
Overall, these figures highlight the significant influence of age and gender on the odds of dying. It's worth noting that these are statistical probabilities and not destiny. The odds can be significantly influenced by individual lifestyle choices and societal factors.
