I am so confused what does <-0.50 Std. Dev. mean?

LOL! I didn't notice it until now. I think that the higher the number the higher chance of death.

std. dev. stands for standard deviation.

"A large standard deviation indicates that the data points are far from the mean and a small standard deviation indicates that they are clustered closely around the mean."

(I couldn't be bothered to explain it myself, good ol' wiki :D)
