    The colors stand out much better here, but I haven't the foggiest idea how to interpret your descriptions.

    I wonder if this will make it any more clear. Here are the countries with the lowest and highest Red values:

    So on the Legend:
    United Kingdom is top right (blue), Malawi is top left (green), Qatar is at the bottom (red). I think Rwanda is on its own in yellow at the bottom left.

    What I have plotted is the value by country, and summed over time. If I instead plot by time, and sum by country I get:

    I could look at only one country, and plot by time:

    One of these is the things, then you have to have a reasonable go at the classes before I give it to someone.

    That is pretty close. A couple more by country graphs may clarify it:

    red: violent deaths
    green: premature deaths not directly caused by violence
    blue: natural deaths

    Yeah, close enough to win :beer: . More precisely:

    1 – in Red: Injuries caused by road accidents, homicides, conflict deaths, drowning, fire-related accidents, natural disasters and suicides.
    2 – In Green: Communicable diseases (i.e. infectious diseases) such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis together with maternal deaths, neonatal deaths and deaths from malnutrition.
    3 – in Blue: Non-communicable diseases. These are often chronic, long-term illnesses and include cardiovascular diseases (including stroke),B cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic pulmonary disease and asthma, but excluding infectious respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis and influenza).

    I was aiming for "Which of the 4 horsemen gets you", but it was difficult from both data capture and data display fronts. The distribution I plotted is easily available from Our World in Data.
    I was really surprised how high the Gulf Countries injuries rate is. I guess this is all the imported workers, who is they die on the job are counted in the gulf, but if they get any disease they are re-exported home. This really demonstrates the value of workplace health and safety.

    Rwanda out there on its own demonstrates quite how horrific the genocide there was. If I plot the absolute death rate you get the graph below. About the same number of people have died from injuries in the last 27 years as have died from non-communicable diseases, most of those in 1 year. That is just horrific.

    There is hope in there as well. This is Bangladesh, and the number of people dying from the main preventable deaths, the green ones, has gone down loads.

    I have done a pdf with all the countries / regions. The better one is absolute values here , or here for the proportions.

    @Voenkomat, are you up? If so:

    Anything about energy production / use. Perhaps something like energy exporters/importers?

    It has been over a month. I know I have done most of the recent ones, but this is very different in at least one way:
