A report from the World Health Organization National Health Account database shows a list of 212 countries and the positions in world rankings for 188 of them, in 2012, for the following criteria:
Out-of-pocket health expenditure (% of private expenditure on health) http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SH.XPD.OOPC.ZS
Although I understand the nature of rankings, I am now unsure about what these figures actually mean especially as the top spot goes to Malta with 104% of private expenditure on health.
The next ten countries each came out at 100%, and then it goes down to 6.50% for Kiribati, in position 188.
A selection of countries in the middle are added in this small comparison list:
- 1. 104.000% Malta
- 96. 83.90% Philippines
- 150. 63.00% Australia
- 152. 62.60% New Zealand
- 166. 53.10% United Kingdom
- 171. 48.60% Canada
- 182. 20.90% United States
- 188. 6.500% Kiribalti
Health care expenditures minus government expenditures is the definition of these figures that I have seen.
15.1 - 588,074
