Where the Doctors Are

Today's chart porn: cool interactive map of where the doctors are.    Doesn't tell you much you wouldn't have guessed but it does provide dramatic evidence of one of my favorite points.  Specifically, that a genuine wasteland is the swath of round down through western Nebraska and Kansas and environs.  No surprise that there are so few doctors in that part of the world; the amazing part is that there are any people.

If memory serves, western Kansas and Nebraska also rank at or near the top of farm subsidy recipients.  But I believe the checks go mostly to places where the drinks have little umbrellas.

H/T Ezra Klein.  For ag subsidies, ,the go-to source is Mark Perry.

Oh, and speaking of ag subsidies, go here.
