India and the World

Superb graphics from If It Were My Home, representing cross-country comparison on certain social and economic indicators.

For example, the average American spends 78.1 times more on health care, and consumes 27.6 times more oil and 25.8 times more electricity than the average Indian. In comparison to the average Indian, the average Chinese spends 2.5 times more money on health care, consumes 5.3 times more electricity and 2.6 times more oil, and has 59.81 times more chance of being employed, and 66.4% less chance of dying at infancy.

The only flattering comparison for an Indian would be when made with this country!

Is this normalized with respect to purchasing power? We pay our nurses, doctors, attendants , cleaners, drivers far less. Frankly, I consider Indian health care on more expensive to Indian than American healthcare to American citizen.
