Japan vs Brazil vs United States – Key Stats

I think everyone is aware that Japan is a safe country, and that Brazil is a very dangerous country. How can we understand this through data and statistics? In this article I will share some comparisons and statistics from Japan, Brazil and sometimes the United States which is quite influential in both countries.

The data in this article is taken from a survey carried out by the website NationMaster responsible for doing country-specific surveys and statistics. Let's start!

Most of the figures cited in the article are proportional to the population, most often calculated per 100,000 inhabitants. Try not to take the data in this article as absolute, as these searches are never exact.

Japan is in 129th position in the crime increase, Brazil is in 13th and the United States is in 45th. In terms of crime levels, Brazil is 6 times more dangerous than Japan, while the US is 4 times more dangerous.

In Japan there are 14 hospital beds for every 1,000, while in Brazil there are only 2 and in the US there are 3. The infant mortality rate in Brazil is 8 times higher than in Japan, with 21 deaths per 1000 births.

No matter how much Japan's medical care is criticized by foreigners, Japan ranks 1st in various health categories such as speed, cost, and quality of healthcare. Don't ask me why...

The curious thing to mention about this ranking is that Japan, even without public health, seems to spend 2x less on private expenses than Brazil, where health care is free.
