In a representative sample survey, residents of the Netherlands aged 0 years and older were asked whether they had been treated by an alternative healer in the past 12 months. Questions asked to children under the age of 12 were answered by their parents or guardians.
If they answered ‘yes’, they were invited to indicate what type of alternative healer they had consulted. Various answers are possible. Because this is a sample survey, the figures are subject to a margin of error.
