Would you survive the zombie apocalypse? Sure, the possibility of it actually happening is slim to none, but we’ve all thought about it!

By analyzing everything from the availability of water, population density, army presence and hospitals, as well as the availability of weapons and supermarkets, they were able to determine which province would thrive and which would have a tough time.

In the top spot? The Northwest Territories, with a survival score of 78.57.

“When people during a real zombie apocalypse are able to infect other people with a single bite (like in The Walking Dead series), or by breathing in the infected spores (like in The Last of Us game), escaping large cities is only logical,” they explain.

“The northwest territories have one of the lowest population densities of only 0.04 per km2. This area also has a lot of hospitals per 100,000 of the population (46.15). This is important as hospitals will have access to medication and equipment that could help you survive in the event of an outbreak”
