f1-hcfr-25-1-001: Total Health Care Expenditures as a Percent of Gross Domestic Product: 1980-2001

Mentions: For OECD countries on average, the share of GDP devoted to health care increased markedly in 2001 after a period of relatively stable health care expenditures ratios (Table 1 and Figure 1). This is partially due to slow economic growth. In 2001, OECD countries spent an additional 1.1 percent of GDP on health care compared to 1990, bringing the average up to 8.4 percent.3
