Stats of the Union: Explore U.S. Health Statistics on the iPad:
Stats of the Union (Fathom) by (Ben Fry)’s Fathom Information Design reveals the vital health signs of the U.S. on the iPad. The interactive visualization provides a geographical view on various detailed statistics, such as population demographics, risk factors and indicators of health, all aggregated per county.
Proud iPad owners can now explore the geographical distribution of age, population density or ethnicity, check how people are born (e.g. by parameter like birth weight, premature births) versus how they die (e.g. by cause like homicide, car crashes, heart disease). The population can be filtered by disease, preventative procedures or risk factors, and many other relevant parameters. In addition, interesting views or patterns can be saved and exported.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
