This figure shows a schematic world map. Countries are coloured red or blue corresponding to the percentage change in their antibiotic consumption. Countries with a decrease in antibiotic consumption are coloured blue. Countries with an increase in antibiotic consumption are coloured red. The intensity of the colour is related to the percentage consumption with lighter colours reflecting a lower percentage and darker colours reflecting a higher percentage. Below the map is the key which is comprised of ten colour boxes labelled left to right 50-30, 29-20, 19-10, 9-0, 1-10, 11-20, 21-40, 41-80, +80 and no data. These values indicate the percentage change. The first four boxes are coloured blue and correspond to percentage decrease in consumption. The colour of these boxes gets lighter from left to right so that the furthest box to the left corresponding to 50-30% is dark blue and the furthest right blue box corresponding to 9-0% is light blue. The second five boxes are coloured red and correspond to percentage increase in consumption. The colour of these boxes gets darker from left to right so that the furthest box to the left corresponding to 1-10% is light red and the furthest right red box corresponding to +80% is dark red. The final box in the map key, corresponding to no data, is white.
