Analyzing the relationship between access to doctors and the average life expectancy.
Even within the United States alone, a population’s access to a doctor varies greatly from place to place, making it much more difficult for people in certain states to reach a doctor than others. Either a lack of active physicians, the high cost of available physicians, or both often obstructs that degree of accessibility. However, is there a noticeable link between a state’s accessibility to doctors and the average life expectancy of that state? Let’s take a look.
This infographic, created by eMedCert, was created to provide a visual representation proving the impact that doctor accessibility has on a population’s life expectancy.
