Table description


This table contains data on the perceived state of health and on contacts with providers of medical care of the Dutch population in private households. These data can be grouped by several personal characteristics.

Data available from: 2014

Status of the data: final.

Changes as of 5 March 2021:
The figures for 2020 have been added. The table was expanded with figures about the SF-12. The 'Short Format 12' or the SF-12 questionnaire for short is a selection of 12 questions from the SF-36.
Based on this questionnaire, the summary measure for physical health (norm score physical) and a summary measure for psychological health (norm score psychological) were calculated and added to the table. The results of the 12 separate items were also included.
In addition, the value (and associated lower and upper limit) for oral health has omitted for the 12 to 16 year olds age group and the 12 to 18 year old age group in 2019. These figures were only related to the age 15 year or 15 to 18 year because the question was posed to people 15 years of age or older.

When will new data be published?
Data on reporting year 2021 will be published in the second quarter of 2022.

Description topics

Medical contacts
Persons are asked if they had contact with their GP, specialist, dentist, dental hygienist, orthodontist, physiotherapist, exercise therapist, psychologist, psychotherapist or psychiatrist, and if he or she is treated by alternative healer. Also, if there were hospital admissions or day care admissions, if people have home care and if they had care abroad. Most questions after medical contacts are asked to persons of all ages. Contacts that do not often occur in the case of children are posed from an older age.
Hospital admissions in last 12 months
Hospital admissions are divided into:
- day admissions (without overnight stay)
- admission with at least one overnight stay
Hospital admissions in connection with delivery or birth are excluded.
Admissions with overnight stays
Admissions in a hospital or a clinic for at least one night.
Persons with overnight stays
Percentage of persons in the population who at least once, at least one night, has been admitted in the hospital during the 12 months preceding the interview.
Overnight stays per patient
Average number of nights that patients stay in the hospital during the 12 months preceding the interview. This number is an estimation and is calculated by multiplying the number of times that a person stayed in the hospital one night or more with the number of nights that that person stayed in the hospital for the last time.

Admissions per 100 persons
The average number of admissions with at least 1 overnight stay in hospital per 100 persons during the 12 months preceding the interview.
Admissions per 100 patients
The average number of admissions with at least 1 overnight stay in hospital per 100 patients during the 12 months preceding the interview. Patients are persons who are admitted in the hospital at least once, for at least 1 night during 12 months preceding the interview.
Day admission
Day admissions are hospital admissions without overnight stay e.g. for planned minor surgery, exploratory/keyhole surgery, chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
Day admissions per 100 persons
Number of day admissions in hospital per 100 persons per year in the population.
Day admissions per 100 patients
The average number of day admissions per 100 persons with at least 1 day admission in hospital during the 12 months preceding the interview.
