Mapping the geography of multiple sclerosis around the world

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease affecting the brain and spine and has an autoimmune component. Women are affected more than men. There are interesting observations on the relationship of MS with distance from equator (latitude). In this project we seek to map disease prevalence in different locations around the world. This work is based on earlier work with mapping disease prevalence across countries. However, that work did not include data from multiple sites within each country.
