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 statistics on health and social care, which cover a broader range of activities (including e.g. child day care, welfare, and social services). Exports are also included. 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 on health and social care:

Total figure on health and social care
-/- health-related activities
-/- other goods, services and exports (including welfare and children's day care, function M1(HC)+)
= Total current expenditure on health

Data available from: 1998

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2019 are provisional; the figures for 2017-2018 are revised provisional; the figures for the other years are final.

Changes as of 11 June 2020:
The figures for 2019 have been added, the figures for 2016-2018 have been updated.

When will new figures be published?
In the second quarter of 2021 the 2017-2019 data will be updated and provisional figures on 2020 will be published.
