Health at a Glance 2011: OECD Indicators

This sixth edition of Health at a Glance provides the latest comparable data on different aspects of the performance of health systems in OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development)countries. It provides striking evidence of large variations across countries in the costs, activities and results of health systems. For the first time, it also features a chapter on long-term care.

This edition presents data for all OECD member countries. Where possible, it also reports data for Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation and South Africa, as major non-OECD economies.

This publication takes as it main basis OECD Health Data 2011, the most comprehensive set of statistics and indicators for comparing health systems across the 34 OECD member countries.

  1. Different costs for the same procedure in 2009. Figures from the OECD.

    Staying healthy in the United States is expensive. In fact, in 2009, the average annual cost of health care was $7,960 per person — two and a half times what it was in Japan for the same year.

    For instance,
    PTCA
    USA $14378
    Canada $9277
    Germany $3347

    Germany has health-care insurance for everyone and has better outcomes than the US. Why did American politicians and AMA object health-care insurance for everyone?
