Explanation of symbols

Dataset is not available.


This table presents health(care) expenditure used by residents of the Netherlands in a year. Health care is delineated according to the international definition of the System of Health Accounts. The figures are thus internationally comparable with Eurostat, OECD and WHO publications. All healthcare activities count, regardless of whether they take place inside or outside the healthcare sector.
The figures are derived from the care accounts, which include more activities such as youth care, welfare work, social services and child care. The care accounts also include exports (expenditure on and by non-residents).

Data available from: 1998

Status of figures:
Figures for 2022 and 2021 are revised provisional; other figures are final.

Changes as of 23 May 2024:

Updated figures for 2021 and 2022, and provisional figures for 2023 will be published in the fourth quarter of 2024. Figures on 1998-2020 will be published in 2025.
