Title: PASSIONATE STATISTICIAN: FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE
Movie ID: VT5193
Movie Number: 5193
Description: Uses applied statistics to disprove the medical sssumptions of her day. Using fatality counts from the Crimean War, Nightingale develops a progressive series of statistical diagrams that reveal startling information: most soldiers did not die of their wounds, as reported, but in army hospitals, from diseases related to poor hygiene. When futher data show army death rates twice that of the civilian population, Nightingale traces the cause to overcrowded, disease-riodden barracks.
