Unfortunately the Morbidity Statistics from 2008 are still provisional (they haven't even finalized the Statistics for 2007 yet) and still to be
analyzed. However, the provisional Morbidity Statistics for 2008 (National Vital
) show that the Death Rate has remained 8.1% which is consistent with previous years.
However, the Baby Boomers, which previously was the most populous generation before the Global Tweens came along, are reaching their End of Life and
passing the 77 year Average Lifespan. So, it would not be unusual to see the Death Rate make a substantial increase in the next decade. However, this
so far hasn't happened due to medical advances increasing the Average Lifespan 3-5 years over the previous generation.
To be honest, it sounds like you are just getting older, and as such are more aware of those you once knew checking out, as your awareness of your own
mortality becomes all the more acute. It is a difficult thing to face as you reconcile this within your own psyche, but each and every one of us has
to go through it eventually, just as each and every one of us surely must check out when our time comes. Hopefully though, you'll use that awareness
to start living your life to the fullest if you haven't done such already.
