Mapping the world’s mortality

Mapping the world’s mortality

Benjamin Hennig (www.viewsoftheworld.net)

 Facts:
– In 2015, approximately 8.5 per cent of the world’s population was estimated to be aged 65 and above.
– The United Nations reported that 56.6 million deaths occurred in 2015
– After relatively high child mortality (below the age of four, contributing to three per cent of the deaths worldwide), the numbers of people who have died in 2015 starts relatively low at low ages and then continuously grows, with the largest share of people (29 per cent) having died at the age of 80 and above. Approximately half of the people who died lived beyond the age of 70 which shows the improvements that were made in achieving longer lives.
