This sixth edition of Health at a Glance provides the latest comparable data on different aspects of the performance of health systems in OECD countries. It provides striking evidence of large variations across countries in the costs, activities and results of health systems. For the first time, it also features a chapter on long-term care.
This edition presents data for all OECD member countries. Where possible, it also reports data for Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation and South Africa, as major non-OECD economies.

This publication takes as it main basis OECD Health Data 2011, the most comprehensive set of statistics and indicators for comparing health systems across the 34 OECD member countries.

Issues such as life expectancy, suicide rates, alcohol and tobacco consumption are outlined.
