International Health Statistics with OECD iLibrary

OECD iLibrary Health Statistics is the OECD’s (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) premier online information source for the global health information. This database offers CSU researchers access to worldwide data on health status, health care resources, non-medical determinants of health, demographic and economic references, and much more. [Note that this OECD database is listed in the Schwartz Library’s list of databases, not under the Law Library.] Here’s a sampling of statistics available from OECD iLibrary Health Statistics that will give you a flavor of the information depth of this resource –

  • Government social spending per head
  • Old age social spending
  • Public unemployment spending
  • Causes of mortality
  • Prevention and public health services
  • Alcohol and tobacco consumption
