Fantastic analysis as always. Great charts, and thanks for the shareable XLS file.

Tea Leaves indeed indicate 2022 on track to be as bad as 2021 for accidents, though I haven't run age groups. Total accidental deaths noted as of June 2nd update was at 82,563 (for extremely provisional 20 week data), at the 20 week collection mark last year it was 81,938. In 2020 it was 76,761.

I haven't compared to provisional Wonder, just running against the CDC "Weekly Provisional Counts of Deaths by State and Select Causes, 2020-2022".

Any chance we can petition wonder to add direct SQL querying??? :)
