Geomapping Fatality Risk for Seniors during Severe Events by Arcturus Kirwin-Muller, 2014
Population Density in People per Square Kilometer: P.
Statistically average percentage of people aged 65 or over: A.
Number of reported deaths in vulnerable age bracket from tracked event: D.
Geographical size of sample, eg urban area, in square kilometers: K.
Corresponding risk is calculated using R for Risk: R = D / (P * A * K)
For our NYC example, R is 0.00002305361
Then a weighted variable accounting for population density and showing the impact can be calculated thus:
G = (P * A * R)
Example: G = 0.03188775335
G is the mortality rate of the elderly group over the tracked event, in Fatality per Square Kilometer, weighted for population density. G or Gran is however a very large unit and 1 Gran would be equivalent to almost eight hundred deaths in a city such as NYC.
Instead, the simple thousandth unit, mG, or milliGran, will be more suitable.
Example: A winter storm which causes 25 elderly deaths in New York City, will have a mortality rate of 31.8877mG. This would represent a per-person risk of 0.0000230536 (or 0.00230536%) risk, or 0.21 days per person if each lost life is assumed to have been a loss of 25 years of life expectancy, when taken as a group.
You can work back to the initial figure, thus:
P * A * K gives the total elderly population of 1084428. That plus the days per person figure gives us the total days lost over the sample population, thusly: 227730 days, or roughly 624 years.
624 / 25 (the lost years per death) gives us approximately 25, the original number.
I have no idea why I made this. Probably because I’m in a snowstorm and it seemed a good use of my time?
Merry Lesbian Christmas! :D
I seem to be drawing more and more lesbeans lately. Staring Moxie and Elsie from my comic Aimless.
Japanese dining etiquette tips for Japan Lover Me's Tabemono Month last July! :3
Cute and helpful Japanese dining tips!
And this is exactly why I don’t go to restaurants and other such places where people will give me shit for not following certain rules of etiquette.
I’ll be polite, I’ll be courteous, but I WILL NOT follow some ARBITRARY AND POINTLESS RULES that will just WORSEN MY DINING EXPERIENCE.
Finally got this finished up
OH my god.
I love this. Straitjackets <3
