Life expectancy vs healthcare spending of rich OECD countries.[3]

The first table and bar chart lists member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). With each country's total expenditure on health per capita in PPP U.S. dollars.

The next table uses data from the World Health Organization (WHO). The table uses 2018 PPP international US dollars (inflation-adjusted to 2018 dollars).

The top chart to the right measures the total cost of health care (public and private expenditures) as a percent of GDP (gross domestic product) for a few nations. GDP is a measure of the total economy of a nation.
