The online resources below offer international information in a geographical way. Information is presented via interactive maps with detailed information on countries, as well as specific health indicators.
Health statistics are usually generated from vital (birth, death, marriage, divorce rates), mortality (the number of people who die of a certain disease compared with the total number of people) and morbidity (incidence of disease in a population) data types. Socioeconomic factors, demographic distribution of disease based on geographic, ethnic and gender variables are most commonly available.
