"Equity" as a PubMed Term: 10X since 2017

 Healthcare articles including the term EQUITY are far more common than they used to be, but how much?  I ran a PubMed search for "equity" as a simple single-word term.   Usage rose from about 1,000 in 2012 to over 12,000 in 2021.  For 2022, I assumed one-third of a year (Jan-Apr) and multiple by 3.
