# Cumulative Table Of New Deaths From COVID-19 In Taiwan

7 Likes

I just sorted column E. The data are inconsistent, and there is an odd age out of place, but I got the following:

# # of deaths: ages of deceased

7 deaths: 0-1
6 deaths: 2-4
2 deaths: 5-6
0 deaths: 7-8
3 deaths: 9-10
0 deaths: 11
2 deaths: 12
0 deaths: 13-14
1 death: 15
0 deaths: 16
2 deaths: 17
0 deaths: 18

The ones I lumped together are evenly distributed (e.g., 2 deaths each for 2, 3, and 4 years).

Good to see the two of you working together to sort the numbers out. You should send off your CV’s to the CDC, they might have jobs for you both.

Ahem. I did a fairly in-depth analysis of the data and posted a link to the master spreadsheet a few days back. It got moved to the open thread, IIRC.

The CDC almost certainly do not have job openings for competent, professional statisticians, of which there must be more than a few in Taiwan. They’ve got the funds and the political leverage to hire anyone they want, so there’s a rather obvious explanation for the conspicuous absence of such experts.

A few of Mithrandir’s figures are off, I think (I see 7 deaths for 9-10) but for all ages in that range they’re in single digits.

I’m confused.

I think I need help understanding 7 Deaths: 0-1.

7 deaths occurred in the age group of “0-1”.

Ah. Thank you.

Taiwan achieved the world’s second best disease control as the smaller the number the smaller the mortality attributed to COVID-19.

Men in Taiwan continue to punch well above (or, depending on your point of view, well below) their weight.

This is pretty much what you’d expect among a population of elderly, sick people, in any country. Men have a shorter expected lifespan than women and a higher all-cause risk of death. Based on typical “Western” statistics, at age 77 (the average age-at-death for the MOHW spreadsheet) you have about 46% men and 54% women surviving, with all-cause risk around 0.042 and 0.030 respectively; therefore about 55% male deaths and 45% female deaths at that age, which is not far off Taiwan’s longterm “COVID death” average (41% female).

Deaths are clearly trending down now too.

Is this how they’re doing them now? It looks like a prison mugshot.

They should just post the placards. Unless the CDC is trying to put together a sexy calendar, that is.

It was a dig at the CDC, not you. I just think it looks a bit ridiculous.
