This second edition of Health at a Glance aims to build on the success of the inaugural edition by presenting an expanded set of indicators. In keeping with the original aim and as its name suggests, Health at a Glance presents key health indicators in charts and tables. It is designed to provide the basis for a better understanding of a range of factors which affect the health of populations and the performance of health care systems in OECD countries. The publication shows cross-country variations and trends over time in core indicators of health status, health care systems and non-medical determinants of health. It also provides a brief interpretation of these data. The statistical annex at the end of the publication offers additional data on these indicators in a set of more than 50 tables.The AIHW provided significant input for this publication, including all Australian data.This publication is also available in hard copy from the OECD.
