I am using this book for my Women in Developing Countries class. It has great data from almost any topic concerning women from wages to domestic abuse. Here is an example from one of the pages (click to enlarge):
This page is dedicated to women and breast cancer. The map shows the rates of breast cancer per 100,000 women in each country from 2002-2007. The darker green countries having the highest rates of breast cancer. The lowest rates are the countries in bright yellow. The map also shows the number of women who die each week (using data from 2002), with the United States and India holding the highest numbers.
According to the atlas, “breast cancer is highest in the industrialized countries. Europe and North America, home to under one-fifth of the world’s women, account for half of the world’s breast cancer cases.
This book is fascinating! Even when I complete this class I will continue to buy this book.
