Mentions: Figure 6 shows how OECD countries are ranked by their increasing share of out-of-pocket spending and by total health care expenditures. The public sector is the main source of health care funding in all OECD countries, except the U.S., Mexico, and Korea. During the 1970s, the public share of health care spending increased in OECD countries on average, but since 1980 has stabilized and even slightly declined in the 1990s. On average, the public share of health care funding accounted for 72 percent in 2001. The public share was more than 80 percent in several countries, including the Czech Republic, Denmark, and the United Kingdom (Table 5 and Figure 6).
