Ill-conceived U.S. healthcare ranking makes for unhealthy debate
During the healthcare debate, the statistic that states the U.S. ranks 37th in the world in healthcare is often cited—but the ranking is dated and flawed, according to this article from the Wall Street Journal. The statistic is based on a report released nearly a decade ago by the World Health Organization and relies on statistics that are even older and incomplete, the article states, and has contributed to misconceptions about the quality of the U.S. medical system.
