Table description


This table contains information on expenditure and financing in current prices on the health care used by residents in the Netherlands in one year. All activities within the area of health care are included, irrespective of whether they are performed within or outside the health care sector. These figures are based on the definition of the System of Health Accounts as used by EUROSTAT, the OECD and the WHO.
The figures are derived from the Dutch Health and Social Care Accounts, which cover a broader range of activities (including e.g. child day care, welfare, and social services). The Dutch Health and Social Care Accounts include exports. In this table it can be found in the function M1(HC)+ : Other goods, services + exports.
This table also shows how the total figure in accordance with the System of Health Accounts is calculated from the total figure of the Dutch Health and Social Care Accounts(with figures on 2007 as example):

Total figure of the Dutch Health and Social Care Accounts (74643 million euro)
-/- health-related activities (7687 million euro)
-/- other goods, services and exports (including welfare and children’s day care) (9990 million euro)
= Total current expenditure on health (56966 million euro)
+/+ capital expenditure by health care providers (investments) (4581 million euro)
= Total expenditure on health (61547 million euro)
