Health at a Glance 2009 – OECD Indicators – released 8 December 2009

“This fifth edition of Health at a Glance provides the latest comparable data on different aspects of the performance of health systems in OECD countries. It provides striking evidence of large variations across countries in the costs, activities and results of health systems. Key indicators provide information on health status, the determinants of health, health care activities and health expenditure and financing in OECD countries. This edition also contains new chapters on the health workforce and on access to care, an important policy objective in all OECD countries. The chapter on quality of care has been extended to include a set of indicators on the quality of care for chronic conditions.
This publication takes as its main basis OECD Health Data 2009, the most comprehensive set of statistics and indicators for comparing health systems across the 30 OECD member countries.”
