Percent Insured. 100%. All Norwegian citizens and residents are covered.

Health Care Around the World: Norway

Try to outperform that? You've gained some giggles as of yet, that's all.

You're the one that made the assertion that canada would invalidate my analysis. Supply the proof. Put up or shut up.

We have a law mandating that too, what more do you want?

Nowhere in your OP was there any discussion about healthcare reform or making it better.

The topic you picked was to claim the US system was better. The evidence seems rather overwhelming it's not I'm afraid.

I happen to live in a country that consistently scores high on health care measures (despite often poor life style variables). Why would I complain?

Really? I started this thread? Funny, I don't recall that. Must be the poor health care.

You can do your own research, or lack there of. I could care less, as my feelings are also covered universally.

Your reading comprehension is on par with the data you've presented.

Looks great on paper you say? Not really.


The American Hospital Association also sent a letter voicing "significant concerns" about the current bill. Specifically, it believes the bill could lead to "tremendous instability" for people seeking affordable health insurance.

Major health groups oppose proposed changes in 'Trumpcare' bill

And you sickos wanna outperform Norway, that's highly ambitious!

I wasn't requesting suggestions for healthcare reform. I was requesting suggestions on how to make the data better since you're complaining it's inadequate.

I am keeping my post quality on par with your research on healthcare.

How about if you want to claim the US system is better then you find a study showing it is?

The commonwealth fund report ranked the US as 11 out of 11 despite spending the most per capita. A counter example would be a good place to start.

It all depends on the goals of your study. The US has the best doctors and medical technology in the world. Why do you think that is?

The Scandinavian healthcare model has been outperforming the rest of the world for years. They're some very lucky people that their governments look after them so well.

Yes, it means higher taxes, but the quality of the care is worth it.

Population of Norway... 5 million people (not even as populous as NYC which has 8.5 million people).

Population of US... 325 million

Norway is also a very homogenous population whereas the US is extremely diverse racially, culturally, and economically.

It is an apples to oranges comparison.

The bloomberg health care index puts the US 50 out of 55.

Do you have evidence that the US has the best doctors?

I'm amazed that you just admitted that "it all depends on the goals of your study" and nobody else has jumped on that. The irony of your comment is monumental.
