Annals of Russian Extinction

The United Nations Development Program has produced the following stats for its 2007/2008 report. For some reason they don't give their average male life expectancy in numerical order, so we sorted it on Excel. To see it like this is extraordinary -- Russia (#130 on a list of 173 countries) is two places above Haiti and two below Yemen.

Its even more interesting to note that Ghana scores better!!! and Ghana is the kind of place that people with a fear of machetes should not go. (Gambia being a key place)

La Russophobe, your data is not correct, you just got the data of post-1998-crisis years of 1999, 2000, 2001. The male life expectancy for 2006 was 61,5, for 2007 it is 62,5.

La Russophobe said...

The date of the data is clearly given. At 62.5 Russia would rank #113. Are you proud of that?

You give no source for you "data." Could your source be the Kremlin?

Hypocrite.

Idiot.

LR,

so since the USA ranks behind (in no particular order) Costa Rica, Cuba, Kuwait, and Chile, does that mean that the USA is 'worse' or 'inferior' to those countries? If not, why not?

La Russophobe said...

Your ignorance is truly breathtaking.

Are you suggesting that this list shows America and Russia are in the same position? As we read it, Russia's position is MUCH lower.

The fact that America lags behind such countries has been MAJOR news in America, and the subject of a documentary film by Michael Moore called "SICKO" that was watched by millions. America is very concerned about the need to reform and improve.

But Russia isn't. Instead, all you want to do is rationalize Russian failure. Just as in Soviet times, when a Russian problem is identified, all you want to do is talk about problems OTHER countries are having. Meanwhile, the USSR was destroying itself.

You're a clueless imbecile.

Just for comparison, that's less than - much critiqued - life expectancy for Australian Aborigines. Also noticed Ukraine and Belarus is very low.

the USA could be much higher in ratings if the USA didnt go to more heroic efforts to save people.

yes, to your simple concepts, saving more would raise the rate, but not necessarily. people who are infirm, and so forth in the US cna live to an old age... in those other countries, they are more likely to die earlier and never make the average...

so a person who gets diabetes while young will survive and die at an earlier age than a healthy person.

however, in another country, that same person would die as a teenager, or young adult, and would be stuck on a list of unnatural deaths.

this is also why the births data is also not up to par... take my new cousin.. last week she just lost the baby she was carrying, and did so in the end of near the last month.

my wife and i are in america, and the cousin (by marraige) is in indonesia. so the doctor in indonesia, a socialist medicine place, gave her meds that are contraindicated for pregancy. so between that and eclampsia... the baby died... then she had to keep the baby inside her for a week...

in the US they would have induced labor, and then cared for the baby in an incubator... but not in a socialist state, thts too expensive...

even if the baby dided due to eclampsia in the US, they would induce labor so the mother wouldnt give a still born at home.

but heck... people dont think about the salient differences and how they effect the numbers, and who different states compute them.

russia has been known to cook the books almost every time.. even if a number is good, its never good enough.. even if a building is big, its not big enough till it cant be built... etc.

so its not too sure that even that number is correct, since they have to report it... it may be worse, but they can only hide so much under a napkin.
