Country Health Calculator

The County Health Calculator is an excellent example of data visualization tool that illustrates how education and income affect health outcomes.

Users can drill down to states or counties and see the deaths per year, persons with diabetes, and diabetes costs. The data is displayed in bar graph format, and offers movable sliders. When the slider tool is moved, a computer program uses a regression equation to estimate the proportional change in death rate or diabetes prevalence based on the proposed change in the education or income level.
