Society at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2014

This is the third edition of Society at a Glance Asia/Pacific, a regularly updated OECD overview of social indicators, which addresses the growing demand for quantitative evidence on social well-being and its trends. This report starts with an introductory chapter providing a guide to help readers understanding the OECD Social Indicator framework. Chapters 2 and three are special thematic chapters to address two increasingly topical issues in the social debate: Gender Equality in Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship and Social Protection Expenditure.

Hide / Show Abstract

Financial resources for health are unevenly distributed geographically. Among low income countries in the Asia/Pacific region, health spending per capita ranged from USD 25 in Myanmar to USD 385 in Thailand in 2012 (, Panel A). There is a significant expenditure discrepancy between OECD and the Asia/Pacific economies and countries. On average, OECD countries on a per capita basis spend five times more than in the Asia/Pacific economies and countries – USD 3 514 versus USD 756.
