Money Attracts Doctors

This article discusses the perception that doctors mostly have their offices in places where most of the privately insured people live (most Germans are insured by the statutory health insurance). A combination of a map and a scatter plot gives access to the datasets that we combined to prove this these right. The reader can see the correlation between different types of doctors per 10,000 inhabitans (Hausärzte = family doctors; Fachärzte = specialists; Kinderärzte = pediatricians; HNO-Ärzte = ENT doctors; Kaufkraft = purchasing power; Ländlichkeit = rusticity; Kinderbetreuung = child care) Full credit: Paul Blickle, Karsten Polke-Majewski, Julian Stahnke and Sascha Venohr

What makes this project innovative? What was its impact?

For the first time we introduced a synced combination of map and scatterplots. This provides two ways to jump into the regional data for all german counties. Showing the correlations within the scatterplots makes it easier to understand that the thesis has been proven by the data.
