We’re #1

I very much enjoyed this Kevin Drum post about where he goes for data sources.  I use OECD data all the time, but I usually use do something like a google image search on “OECD health care spending per capita.”  Thus, I did not realize there was a really cool OECD data portal.  I searched on “health outcomes” just for fun, and this came up.

Yeah, we’re the worst, but we’re not a crazy outlier.  That said, damn are they doing something right in Japan and Korea.  Surely, there’s got to be something we can learn from them.

Anyway, more cool charts in the future now that I’ve found this!
