Income vs Healthcare
Transcript of Income vs Healthcare
% of Population with Income Vs. % with a Healthcare Provider
Income vs. Healthcare
% of the Population with Employment Income
The graphs show the percentage of the population with income for each province, as well as for Canada's total
* This graph shows the income of the provinces from least to greatest.
-The data is from the year 2012, before Alberta's oil crash, so Alberta may be lower down on the graph, if one were to be made for this year
-Shows the % of the population, by province with a doctor.
-This is important to research because it shows us how efficient the healthcare system is, and also which provinces have the most doctors proportionate to the the population.
-This is important to research because it is a good indicator of the job market per province, and which provinces have the highest percent of people employed.
-This could be relevant for us in the next decade as we begin to search for a job
GRAPH OF HEALTH CARE BY PROVINCE
Yukon has lowest % of healthcare providers (60.1%), whereas Northwest Territories has highest % of healthcare providers (88.4%), however they are neighboring regions
We believe that despite Canada's publicly funded universal healthcare, provinces with a higher employment rate would have more accessibility to healthcare.
Research has shown that countries with more economic growth and financial stability have higher life expectancy
Canada's health care system is a group of socialized health insurance plans that provides coverage to all Canadian citizens. It is publicly funded and administered on a provincial or territorial basis, within guidelines set by the federal government.
This is actually what some barns look like in Alberta--->
As you can see, this data is very weakly related, if at all
The Correlation Coefficient is 0.0386
*As you recall from definitely paying attention in class, the closer a # is to 0, the weaker the relationship*
What does this even mean?
It may be interesting to conduct this same study using data from the U.S., since they do not have universal healthcare, their graph could likely show a stronger correlation, with healthcare depending more on income than in Canada where it is free
So... Thank you Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau! For making this possible
Our initial hypothesis, that despite Canada's publicly funded universal healthcare, provinces with a higher employment rate would have more accessibility to healthcare, was proven incorrect!
Income has very little to no effect whatsoever on accessibility to basic healthcare per province in Canada
Thank you for your attention!
Can you spot the bias?
Well... it means that Canada's universal healthcare system has done a relatively good job in making sure people with low income can still have access to pretty much the same standard of healthcare as everyone else
