Health at a Glance 2017

OECD Indicators

This new edition of Health at a Glance presents the most recent comparable data on the health status of populations and health system performance in OECD countries. Where possible, it also reports data for partner countries (Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Lithuania, Russian Federation and South Africa). The data presented in this publication come from official national statistics, unless otherwise stated.

This edition contains a range of new indicators, particularly on risk factors for health. It also places greater emphasis on time trend analysis. Alongside indicator-by-indicator analysis, this edition offers snapshots and dashboard indicators that summarise the comparative performance of countries, and a special chapter on the main factors driving life expectancy gains.

Hide / Show Abstract

The burden of mental illness is substantial, affecting an estimated one in four of the OECD population at any time, and one in two across the life course (see indicator on “Mental health” in ; OECD, 2014a). High quality, timely care has the potential to improve outcomes and may help reduce suicide and excess mortality for individuals with psychiatric disorders.
