We use covariance and correlation calculations to look at a country across time. There aren't enough
points to know which figure, if either, is accurate for Ethiopia. Likewise, we'd not easily believe Italy
could lose 19,000 doctors in one year ; 17,000 the next year and then come roaring back.
We'd be equally skeptical of France's count for 2007. The real problems are Brazil, Portugal and Israel.
We certainly wish
there was a flag that
indicated that 2004
through 2006 for Italy
were estimates (hence
the three zeros) while
2007 and 2008 were
counts. Even so, a 10%
increase from 2007?!
