Doctors of the World’s Map of Inhabitants per Doctor

by Joey deVilla on September 14, 2007

Since I’m on a map kick today, here’s another one: a map by Doctors of the World (a.k.a. Medecins du Monde) showing the ratio of inhabitants to doctors throughout the world. In case you’re not all that hot with math, smaller ratios are better:

what a cool graphic.

I’d be interested in seeing the same thing fine-grained for Canada, divided up by municipality.

wow! in some ways I’m not surprised about Africa, but it still saddens me the ratio is that big.

Very cool… smaller ratios are better, but when you consider Russia had one of the best ratios, is that really right?

@Logical Philosopher: That ratio may be right. I’d be willing to bet that their ratio of inhabitants to mathematicians is lower than ours…
