This compendium of health statistics brings together data from a wide variety of sources on demography, health status and the delivery of health services. It provides a broad overview of health in Ireland as well as serving as a resource and reference for those interested in particular aspects of health and the health services.

The report’s format continues to reflect the ongoing shift in emphasis from illness to the promotion of healthy lifestyles, the need for better information, particularly in the areas of health status, health risks and health determinants, and the continued development of community-based health services.

The first three sections of the report contain demographic and health status indicators:
• Section A — Population
• Section B — Life Expectancy and Vital Statistics
• Section C — Health Status and Lifestyle.

The remainder of the report deals with health services provision and associated employment and expenditure statistics:
• Section D — Community Health and Welfare Services
• Section E — Children in Care and Child Abuse Cases
• Section F — Psychiatric Services
• Section G — Services for People with an Intellectual Disability
• Section H — Acute Hospital Services
• Section J — District/Community Hospitals and Extended Care
• Section K — Health Service Employment Statistics
• Section L — Expenditure Statistics.
