Lightbulb Question about NL and Swe

Hi guys,

I stumbled upon the attached graph a while back and thought I'd ask you guys for input. Basically, it shows that countries where you have to sign your donor card to give organs get tons less participation than countries where you have to sign NOT to donate. That much is clear.

What I was wondering is if any of you (looking at the dutch in the room) would have insights about why NL is so much higher, and Sweden so much lower than their groups. Is it accessibility? Politics? Religion? Advertisement? I'm guessing it's rather complicated and that you guys are generally generous but there's got to be more to it.

I showed it in stats class last month, as an example of bar graph, and it raised more questions than I could begin to answer.


Sorry this isn't spam.
