f5-hcfr-25-1-001: Total Health Care Expenditures Per Capita and as a Percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 2001

Mentions: Health care expenditures per capita converted to US$ purchasing power parity (PPP)7 is commonly used to compare the overall level of consumption of health care goods and services across countries. According to this measure, the U.S. continues to spend far more on a per capita basis for health care than any other country. It spent over US$4,880 per capita on health care in 2001—more than twice the average of around US$2,080 PPP across OECD countries (Figure 5). Next in this ranking for 2001 come Switzerland, Norway, Germany, and Canada; and at the other end of the scale, Mexico, Poland, Slovak Republic, Korea, and Hungary spent less than US$1,000 on health care.
