International Comparison of Health Data

International Comparison of Health Data

Order Details:

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 data from the two countries you selected for Discussion 2 with the United States (i.e., compare the same countries in both Discussion 2 and the Assignment).In preparation 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 Learning Resources, including pages 55–62 of the Shi and Singh (2015) textbook.Use the WHO website found in this module’s Learning Resources to examine country statistics and profiles. Create a table to record data related to three health indicators for the three countries (i.e., the two you have selected to compare with the United States, for a total of three countries) as illustrated in the “Module 5 Example” document (located in the Learning Resources).Once your table is complete, compare the data and analyze it in light of the information presented in this module’s Learning Resources and the research you conducted for Discussion 2. What insights does this comparison give you about health and disease within the U.S. health care delivery system and the systems of the two other countries you selected?
