Data on perceived health and chronic disorders are based on the Health Survey published by Statistics Netherlands. A representative sample of the population of the Netherlands of all ages are asked the question: How is your health general / the health of your child in general? For people answering “very good” or “good” the perceived health is good. For people answering “alright”, “poor” or “very poor” the perceived health is less than good. Because this is a sample survey, the figures are subject to a margin of error.
