This “Worldmapper” map shows where physicians work. Territory size shows the proportion of all physicians (doctors) that work in a specific country. The map does not measure the number of physicians per capita. China is the largest territory on the map because it has the largest number of physicians, though not the largest number of physicians per capita. Italy, Cuba, and Monaco have the most physicians working per capita.
The map is accompanied by two tables that show ranked lists of the ten countries with the most and fewest physicians working per 100,000 people. There is also a bar graph that shows the number of physicians working per 100,000 people by region in 2002.
