Life cover claims by condition and gender
Below statistics from Zurich shows us a rear insight in the life cover claims by condition. What are the conditions that people in the UAE pass away from?
The main reasons are vascular (heart attack + stroke) 41%, cancer 31% and road traffic accidents 10%. The main reasons men pass away is vascular 48%, cancer 26%, accidents 12%, renal 2% and others 12%. The main reasons woman pass away is cancer 50%, vascular 19%, accident 9% and others 22%.
We see a clear difference between the main conditions of death between the genders. Men are 2.5 times more likely to pass away from vascular conditions than woman, but woman are almost 2 times more likely to pass away from cancer than men.
Knowing what is statistically the most likely reason you might pass away allows you to take preventive actions to decrease the possibility that it will happen to you. It also allows you to cover yourself on the conditions that will most likely effect you.
