Eurostat collates and disseminates a wide range of health data from member states. Their public health data are divided into three domains:

  • Health care:
    • health care expenditure:
    • health care non-expenditure: including hospital statistics (hospital beds, surgical procedures in hospitals, high-tech equipment and patient related data i.e. hospital discharges by disease).
    • health care indicators from surveys: tables on perceived unmet needs for medical or dental care, consultations of health care professionals, hospitalisation, cancer screening, etc.
  • health status indicators from surveys: tables on self-perceived health, life styles and restrictions. Data on health conditions also play a role in the calculation of the "healthy life years expectancy". This collection includes also tables on employment of disabled persons based on a 2002 ad hoc module of the Labour Force survey.
  • causes of death: Eurostat disseminates COD statistics according to a shortlist of 65 causes ('Causes of death – European shortlist', based on the ICD – International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, WHO). Data are available at national and regional level (NUTS 2) for total number, crude death rates (CDR) and standardised death rates (SDR), broken down by age groups and by sex.

Source / Reference

Eurostat brings together information from different data-sources: New Cronos (Eurostat), Ecosanté (OECD), Health for All (WHO), FAO, IARC, Euro HIV, specific epidemiological studies, etc.: health status of the population, main diseases, statistical description of Health Care systems, issues of life styles (nutrition, smoking, drinking, physical activity, drug use), mortality (infant, causes of death) and health risks associated with environment, work, leisure and traffic. Data covers the 27 EU Member States, as well as Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein.
