Every one of us will die someday, but not necessarily in an interesting way. Courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, here’s a map you can use to figure out just what kind of unusual causes of death occur in your state.

The CDC recently released an infographic of the “most distinctive causes of death” in each of the 50 states. The peer-reviewed paper, which was published on the CDC’s website, details which cause of death in each state sticks out when compared to the national average. The authors write that the results, which used data from 2000 to 2010, were intended to give a “more nuanced view of mortality variation” across the country.
