Comparison of Data Health Medical Discussion

The World Health Organization’s “Statistical Information System” is an interactive database that allows you to compare health indicators for multiple countries. For this Assignment, you will compare the country you selected for the Discussion with the United States in terms of healthcare (i.e., please compare the same country in both the Discussion and Assignment.)

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Consider the value of using standardized quantitative health measures or indicators to compare information internationally.
  • Examine the definitions of indicators presented in the Resources, including pages 65–72 of the Shi and Singh (2019) course text.
  • Use the WHO website to examine country statistics and profiles.
  • Create a table to record data related to three health indicators for the two countries you are comparing, as illustrated in the example Indicators Chart on this page.
  • Once your table is complete, compare the data and analyze it in light of the information presented in this week’s Resources and the research you conducted for the Discussion. What insights does this comparison give you about health and disease within the U.S. healthcare delivery system and the system of the other country you selected?
  • Review the resources in the Writing and Library Skills Resource Guide page.
