One of these things is not like the other


From the World Health Organization:
"...In the developed regions, which include Europe, North America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, the ratio is about 10 per 100 000 live births or less."

are you pointing out that america is not one of the blue regions, but that it is lumped into 'north america'? maybe they meant to say part of north america.

or am i missing the point entirely (which is VERY possible)?

Well, the really interesting bit is how the maternal mortality rate for Whites in the US (2003) is 8.7 per 100k live births while the maternal mortality rate for Blacks is 30.5.
