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).
