1. On average, how many drowning deaths were there in bathtubs, pools, and hot tubs in August?
2. The graphic states that 71% of deaths occurred in May, June, July, and August. If deaths were equally distributed throughout the year, what amount of deaths would we expect in these months instead?
3. Compute the total average deaths per year in Washington State (guesstimate what the bars mean). If 85% of these deaths could have been prevented, how many people would have been saved if all preventable deaths were prevented?
4. Now here’s a question — the graph refers to ALL deaths, regardless of age (I checked the data). Only about 20% of those deaths (per year) are children under 14. Assume the preventable statistic (85%) refers to preventable deaths by children. If all preventable deaths were prevented, how many children would be saved?
5. Males are about 2.5 times more likely to drown than females. Assume about 100 drowning deaths a year. What number are females, and what number males?
6. What changes would you make to this infographic to increase its usefulness while maintaining its impact and clean design? What do you find unclear in it? Use the COMPARABLE checklist if it helps.
