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 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 health and social care:

Total figure on health and social care
-/- exports
-/- non-healthcare providers (welfare, children’s day care)
-/- health-related products (like social long term care)
= Total current expenditure on health

Data available from: 1998

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:
