Health status

English
Hide / Show Abstract

Health status includes the length of people’s lives and in this case also the number of children i day care. Life expectancy is rising in all the Nordic countries. However, the levels vary greatly. A characteristic feature in the Nordic countries is the high rate of both parents participating in the labour force. This increases the need for child care options during working hours. Thus, most children between the ages of 3 and 5 are in institutions. In the Nordic region, a pension is payable to the elderly. All citizens are guaranteed a certain level of income in connection with retirement (old age), disability or loss of a provider.
