wow- you plug in data and you get numbers! and that MEANS SOMETHING!!!!

who could have thought

And just think- wherever the sun rose today, some people died! So the sun causes death

And here’s and even more stunning “statistic” - some people were BORN!!!! so - the sun causes pregnancy

And if you average all the birthdays in your zip code, you will find more people were born in some months than others- so, your zip code says when you will be born too!! By the laws of averages, you will NOT change the average by any amount when you die, you will just DIE AT THE AVERAGE date!!!

That’s how it works, you see- averages CAUSE the deaths to occur. It’s all this science-y stuff, you know?

Coorelation is not causation. Granted. But there must be a reason. If you did identical plots for white and black population separately, I bet there would be far less regional disparity. The disparity is probably more related to race than locale. The other interesting thing is that three of the counties with the highest *increase* in longevity are all in New York City. New York’s five boroughs are each a county in the state. Borough = County:

Manhattan = New York County
Brooklyn = Kings County
The Bronx = Bronx County
Queens = Queens County
Staten Island = Richmond Count.

The time period included Rudy Juliani’s successful effort to rein in the Dinkins Crime Wave. New York courts appear determined to revive the good old days of David Dinkins.
