The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s Health Statistic 2016 page features extensive data about health around the globe. This information will be of interest to health scholars and policy researchers alike. Academics, students, and interested members of the general public can explore this data in a number of ways. Those who want to explore the data in full can do so through a link to the complete 2016 health database, including information on life expectancy rates, infant health data, rates of cancer, and data about perceived health status by gender and socio-economic background. Visitors may also choose to explore a number of more specific datasets, from Health Expenditure and Financing to Health Care Quality Indicators. Finally, OECD also provides an abridged – although still quite extensive – report of key data points, which visitors can download as an easily navigable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. This is perhaps most useful for those looking to quickly access comparative data for use in a social science classroom. Visitors can also learn about the OECD methodology on this website and read related OECD publications. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.
