In the video 'The enormous disparity in global health visualized', the creator Hans Rosling has used the power of the graphics and info graphics to analyze and visualize the trends in the health and wellbeing of the people around the world. The video is a reflection of the intersections of statistics and medicines on a single platform. The enormous amount of figures and numbers are gathered through the use of arts and graphics of computer software that have turned the massive data into simple facts and figures that are easy to understand and demonstrate. It is helpful for everyone but especially to those who have a little or no background knowledge of the statistics or typical medical terminologies related to the health of the people around the world. It defines what is actually happening in the world through identifying the factors that lead towards the severe health conditions of the people around the world and the disparities and differences among the different nations regarding the health care conditions of the people. It also describes the events that have caused the differences and disparities in the health are conditions around the world that have lead to the significant consequences in the health care industry internationally (Brodbeck et al., 2009).
This paper discusses the views of author regarding the use of massive amount of data and its conversion into info graphics and visual graphics. It critically analyzes the use of massive amounts to data that could be applied in different industries or institutes in order to make the data work for the researcher or any other concerned person or population. The concepts given in the enormous disparity in global health visualized are constantly used as a base for the analysis of the global health visualization.
Global Health Visualized
There are several issues in the health care systems of the nations around the world. It is difficult to analyze and compare their data based on the comparative analysis of the statistics of each country. It has been observed that there is a difference in between the health care conditions of one nation as compared to the others. Generally, the western nations tend to have a better health and wealth conditions than the poor or under developed nations. The visualization of the statistics of the different nations of the world has shown that there is a wide gap in the health care conditions and health of the populations in different nations around the world (Garrett, 2003). The most important and apprehensive determinants of the health and wellness of a population contribute to the concept of population health. There are several factors in the society that can be measured in order to analyze the level of health and wellness in a population. Some of these issues and factors include life expectancy, death rates, disability, infant mortality, quality of life, happiness and well being and self assessed health (Crow et al., 2009).
