The main objective of this study is to see if a relationship exist between a measure of a country’s health versus a measure of a country’s wealth GDP per capita (current US $). It is also investigated whether there is a relationship between GDP per capita (current US $) and Heart Disease and Intentional self-harm. Analysis of Pan American Population and mortality rates also produced.
The method uses programming in R and data analysis in excel to produce a simple linear regression.
The results of the total mortality rate during this period versus the average GDP per capita were not statistically significant P = .2354. The results of Heart Disease mortality rate during this period versus the average GDP per capita were not statistically significant P = .2354, The results of the intentional Self harm rate during this period versus the average GDP per capita were not statistically significant P = .2354. A robust regression model or correlation was therefore not found.
The findings were not statistically significant so this paper is unable to confirm a correlation between Gdp per capita vs total mortality rates, Gdp per capita vs heart disease, Gdp per capita vs intentional self- harm.
