Spending in Healthcare

Health Care Costs Money

This infographic displays data from The Economist Intelligence Unit’s ‘Healthcare Outcomes Index 2014’, which took into account a number of diverse and complex factors to produce a ranking of the world’s best-performing countries in healthcare (outcome).

In order to produce a rounded set of outcome rankings, the EIU used basic factors like life expectancy and infant mortality rates alongside weighted factors such as Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) and Health-Adjusted Life Expectancy (HALEs), whilst also taking ageing populations and adult mortality rates into consideration.

The EIU also produced an overview of how much countries spend each year on healthcare per capita. This spending ranking is based on data from the World Health Organization (WHO).

By plotting the EIU’s outcome rankings against spending rankings for each country, we are able to develop a global overview of how effectively countries use their healthcare budgets.
