Help on using Resistance Map

ResistanceMap is an interactive collection of charts and maps that summarize national and subnational data on antimicrobial use and resistance worldwide. The data on resistance allows users to summarize antibiotic resistance for multiple pathogens and antibiotic combinations across numerous countries. We have developed the system to provide quick and ready access to the data. 
 

Chart Types
To begin exploring, you have the choice of three different types of charts: (1) A map; (2) A trending line graph; and (3) a bar chart. 

All three charts present the same data but in different ways; on the map you have the latest resistance rates for a particular pathogen-antibiotic combination; the trending line chart has resistance rates for multiple antibiotics over time covering as much data as we have available for a particular pathogen; and the bar chart shows the latest resistance rates for multiple antibiotics to a particular pathogen across multiple countries.


 

Selecting Pathogens
To get started on any chart, select a pathogen of interest. By default the available antibiotics will be accessible while those for which data is not available will be greyed out.

Selecting Antibiotics
In the map, selecting a new antibiotic will change the display. On the trend line and bar chart, all potential antibiotics are selected by default. You may remove antibiotics from the chart either by clicking on them in the chart, or by clicking on them in the list below the chart.

Selecting Countries
The trend line (and bar charts) defaults to a particular country (or countries), but it easy to change countries. On the trend line, clicking a country changes the chart to display the data for the available antibiotics, while on the bar chart, clicking a country either adds the country to the chart, or removes one that is already selected.

Saving Chart
You can save the chart in a multitude of formats using the  button in the upper right of the chart.

Data includes aggregated resistance rates for isolates (includes intermediate resistance) from blood and cerebrospinal fluid (i.e., invasive) from inpatients of all ages.
Because of differences in scope of collections and testing methods, caution should be exercised in comparing across countries. For more details see methodology.
