HOW TO READ DATA

This interactive data visualization tool is meticulously crafted to present an in-depth exploration of key socio-economic and health indicators across OECD countries, spanning the years from 2010 to 2022 (except for the "Life Expectancy Race: A Journey from 1960-2022" graph). The primary objective of this visualizer is to provide insights into the multifaceted relationship between a country's economic standing, healthcare infrastructure, and the health outcomes of its population. It serves as a powerful resource for researchers, policy makers, and professionals keen on discerning patterns and drawing informed conclusions from the intricate interplay of these variables.

OECD Countries, as highlighted within this application, refer to member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. These nations, with their developed economies and sophisticated healthcare systems, form an essential bedrock for a comparative study examining the intersection of economy and health.

The term "Physicians available" refers to the head count of practicing physicians, professionally active physicians, and professionally licensed physicians. This metric offers a gauge of the healthcare infrastructure and the accessibility of medical services across different nations.

"Alcohol Consumption" quantifies the annual consumption of pure alcohol in liters, per person, aged 15 years old and over. This is a pivotal metric as it illuminates the potential health implications of a nation's drinking habits, from its influence on mortality rates to its potential ramifications on overall life expectancy.

"Mortality Rate" in this tool represents the number of death cases per 100,000 population. It serves as a robust indicator of the general health and vulnerabilities of a nation's inhabitants. trials.

"Infant Mortality Rate" is defined as the number of deaths of infants under one year of age per 1,000 live births in a given year. This metric is especially telling of a country's healthcare system, prenatal care standards, and overall societal health.

Additionally, this application encompasses data on countries' GDP and the share of GDP spent on health, markers that illuminate the financial capacity and prioritization of health by individual nations. Combined with metrics like life expectancy, this dataset provides a holistic view of the socio-economic determinants affecting health.

The visualizer features a dynamic map interface, enabling users to choose from any of the described variables. Upon making a selection, the map adapts to display the data for the selected variable across all OECD countries. This interactive format promises a seamless user experience, allowing for effortless transitions between variables and an enriched understanding of the subject matter.
