Baseline mortality is computed based on 2017-2019 and 2021, excluding 2020 and 2022 data. There has been no respite from Australia's declining health as evidenced by ongoing excess deaths since 2019.
Thanks again Sally.
The mere fact the ABS decided to add 2021 to the baseline avg. data is muddling the waters considering that was a "pandemic year" and also most of the population got injected during that year with their first two series. Those two events can be considered significant outliers knowing now that they easily induced death in the populace rather than save people as we were made to believe
In my view, the baseline avg should only be pre pandemic vs post pandemic excluding 2020 mostly. That way we can truly see the real state of affairs.
I've had to sadly conclude that, unfourtunately, things are going to have to get a lot worse--undeniably worse--before people really sit up and take notice.
I've said elsewhere that we need something big and unmistakable that'll shock people out of their slumber. It may have to be a sports-related--perhaps entire seasons need to be cancelled due to athletes' health. Or maybe we see a number of NHL, NFL, or NBA athletes collapse on the ice/field/court on live television.
They don't like the truth so it's easier to stick their heads in the sand and ignore it. Or perhaps they were paid exorbitant amounts of money to ignore it.
Where did the ABS come up with the idea of creating a 5-year window that leapfrogs 2020 and 2022?
