The online calculator uses data to estimate your mortality risk, based on data for people with similar health situations as you, in your community.
My mortality risk, they calculate, is in the lowest possible category at 4.4 per 100,000 individuals. According to the CDC, influenza has a death rate of 3.4 per 100,000 individuals.
I am over 60 and have 2 health conditions (lifelong exercise induced asthma, and elevated blood pressure) that are factors in their calculation.
Their calculated estimate is significantly different than what earlier reports have led me to think was my risk.
