Toronto Starting STD Map

Back in 2009 the Toronto Star created five different Google Maps showing the rates of Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Infectious Syphilis and Other Syphilis in different neighbourhoods in the city. The data for the maps was supplied by the Ministry of Health in response to a freedom of information request.

A good analysis of the maps is available on the Toronto Star’s website here. It would be interesting, to see these maps in conjunction with other data, such as average income, levels of health insurance etc.
