This figure consists of a scatter graph showing the relationship between antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance in European countries. The horizontal axis is labelled outpatient use of penicillin (2000) and is marked from 0 to 20 in intervals of 2. The vertical axis is labelled penicillin non-susceptible S. pneumoniae (%) (2001) and is marked from 0 to 50 in intervals of 5. Individual points on the graph represent individual European countries and range from The Netherlands on the bottom left of the graph to France on the top right of the graph. There is a trend line drawn through these points.
