See your chances if you had a different smoking status or if you were older
Here you can create pie charts which show Your Chances over the next 10 years in two different ways. The pie charts present the chance that someone your sex, race, age, and smoking status will die – from anything - in the next 10 years (the "glass half empty" form) and the chance they will survive the next 10 years (the "glass half full" form). The charts also list the top causes of death that make up this chance.
To generate the pie charts, choose the sex, race, age, smoking status, and whether to display the top 5, 10, or all available causes of death.
Putting your cursor over a listed cause of death lets you see how its ranking changes over time.
Causes of death are listed in order of how common they are. Interpret the order cautiously because differences between ranks may be very small.

Risk estimates are based on the year range .
- Be cautious interpreting exact rankings for less common causes of death. Because of the wider "margin of error", closely-ranked causes might be tied or even flipped.
- The cancer sites in the tables are ranked based on very precise estimates of the risk of death (ie, 4 decimal place precision). You can view results at this level of precision by selecting the 'Show maximum precision ...' option.
- Risk is less than <0.0001 and cannot be ranked.
