Table description


This table presents a wide variety of historical data in the field of health, lifestyle and health care. Figures on births and mortality, causes of death and the occurrence of certain infectious diseases are available from 1900, other series from later dates.
In addition to self-perceived health, the table contains figures on infectious diseases, hospitalisations per diagnosis, life expectancy, lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity, and causes of death. The table also gives information on several aspects of health care, such as the number of practising professionals, the number of available hospital beds, nursing day averages and the expenditures on care.
Many subjects are also covered in more detail by data in other tables, although sometimes with a shorter history. Data on notifiable infectious diseases and HIV/AIDS are not included in other tables.

Data available from: 1900

Status of the figures:
Most figures are definite.
Figures are provisional for the last year reported for:
- Hospital admissions;
- Quantitative hospital data;
- Health professions;
- Causes of death.
Figures are (revised) provisional for the last three years reported for:
- expenditures on care.
Due to 'dynamic' registrations, figures for infectious diseases remain provisional.

Changes as of 14 July 2022:
- For each series the most recent available figures have been added.
- For health care expenditure, the volume index series with reference year 2010 has been replaced for a new series with reference year 2015.

When will new figures be published?
December 2023

Description topics

Demographic key figures
Total number of people residing in the Netherlands on 1 January, number of live born children and persons deceased.
Deaths

Hospital admissions by some diagnoses
Overnight admissions to general and university hospitals and hospitals specialising in one type of disease. Admissions are included if the date of discharge is within the year under review. Starting 2013, one-day admissions are counted only in case of death of the patient or transport to an other hospital.

Diagnoses are recorded according to the 'International Classification of Diseases'. Up to 2013 version 9 was used (ICD-9-CM), From 2013 onwards version 10 (ICD-10) is used.

Diagnoses are classified according to the International Shortlist for Hospital Morbidity Tabulation (ISHMT). Categories are definied slightly different using ICD-9 (up to 2013) or ICD-10 (from 2013).

Figures on diagnoses refer to the principal diagnosis registered at each admission, as indicated at discharge form the hospital.

The figures are expressed per 10 000 of the population in the year under review.
