Health at a Glance: Europe 2010

This special edition of Health at a Glance focuses on health issues across the 27 European Union member states, three European Free Trade Association countries (Iceland, Norway and Switzerland) and Turkey. It gives readers a better understanding of the factors that affect the health of populations and the performance of health systems in these countries. Its 42 indicators present comparable data covering a wide range of topics, including health status, risk factors,  health workforce and health expenditure.

Each indicator in the book is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological box on the definition of the indicators and any limitations in data comparability. An annex provides additional information on the demographic and economic context within which health systems operate.   

This publication is the result of collaboration between the OECD and the European Commission, with the help of national data correspondents from the 31 countries.

Worldwide, an estimated 1.2 million people are killed in transport accidents each year, mostly due to road traffic accidents, and as many as 50 million people are injured or disabled (WHO, 2009b). In EU countries alone, they were responsible for approximately 48 000 deaths in 2008. In 2008, Italy, Poland, France and Germany each experienced around 5 000- 6 000 transport accident deaths.
