We found moderate correlation (adjusted R-Square of 25%, F-test of 0.02) between Ebola Death Cases and the following characteristics: % of people with cell phones, % of people with bad quality toilets, and mean years of education (of persons aged 20-49).

Once investigated further, it is possible that characteristics such as 1) possession of cell phones 2) level of education, and 3) quality of toilet can be used to determine where aid should be distributed to minimize deaths from Ebola.

Scope includes Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea.
