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, which in this table can be found in the financing item Rest of the world; 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 2008 as example):

Total figure of the Dutch Health and Social Care Accounts (79755 million euro)
-/- exports (90 million euro)
-/- health-related activities, other goods and services (welfare, child day care, social services) for residents (8430 + 10568 = 18998 million euro)
= Total current expenditure on health (60667 million euro)
+/+ capital expenditure by health care providers (investments) (4672 million euro)
= Total expenditure on health (65339 million euro)
