3. ### I What are the statistics of probability of dying today vs age?

I'm using guessed numbers for demonstration. If, say, 70% of births are alive at age 80, and 69% of births are alive at 81, then your chance of dying between 80 and 81 is 1 in 70. If you assume the chance is equal throughout the year, then your chance of dying on a given day is 1 in 70 x...
