Germany Health Stats

Author: Luke.Metcalfe

Germany, the synonym of efficiency and expediency, is proud to have one of the best health care systems in Europe: when the skill and competence of medical staff was assessed by its users, Germany scored the fourth place in Europe, with other indicators being evaluated slightly worse. However, Germany is an aging nation with dependency ratio (the proportion of people under 15 and above 64 years of age to the working population) of 52.13% in 2012 and birth rate of only 8.4 live births per 1.000 people, which is the third lowest in the world (higher only than birth rates in Hong Kong and Macau). Nowadays, Germany depends a lot on the import of skilled labour to maintain the smooth work of the public sector, and that includes doctors. In fact, many of the hospitals, especially in the far North of the country, depend on doctors, coming predominantly from countries of Eastern Europe only recently becoming members of European Union, such as Czech Republic and Poland. They are attracted to Germany by higher wages backed by many incentives to specialist doctors coming to work at smaller hospitals - paid apartment, paid card, and language courses for all family members. This is in sharp contrast to the German immigrant policy of the past few decades, when a huge influx of immigrants, especially from Turkey, was blamed for rising unemployment rates, and in fact the year 2011 was marked as the first year in more than a decade with positive growth of population - due mainly to immigration.

Definitions

  • Abortions: Legal abortions
  • Abortions per 1000: Legal abortions. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Adolescent fertility rate > Births per 1,000 women ages 15-19: Adolescent fertility rate is the number of births per 1,000 women ages 15-19.
  • Birth rate > Crude > Per 1,000 people: Crude birth rate indicates the number of live births occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the crude death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the population growth rate in the absence of migration.
  • Births > Low birth weight: Percentage of live births classified by the OECD as of low birth weight. Data generally for 2000; in some cases, data is for 1999, 1998, or, in the sole case of Belgium, 1997. Refer to the source for details.

  • Maternal mortality: Maternal mortality reported per 100,000 births 1985-1999. The maternal mortality data are those reported by national authorities. UNICEF and the World Health Organization periodically evaluate these data and make adjustments to account for the well-documented problems of under-reporting and misclassification of maternal deaths and to develop estimates for countries with no data (for details on the most recent estimates see Hill, AbouZahr and Wardlaw 2001). Data refer to the most recent year available during the period specified.
  • Mental health > Mental health index: The first data set used here is from large-scale epidemiological surveys implemented as part of the World Health Organization World Mental Health Survey Initiative (WMHSI). These surveys were conducted between 2002 and 2005 in 10 OECD countries. They use a common diagnostic instrument to measure the occurrence of various types of disorders, their nature and intensity, and the treatment provided. Disorders considered include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, disorders linked to impulse control and disorders due to use of alcohol and drugs. All disorders are classified as serious, moderate, or mild.

    The second set of data is from the European Quality of Life Survey conducted in 2007 by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions. These data are based on the following question: Please indicate for each for the five statements which is closest to how you have been feeling over the last two weeks - I have felt cheerful and in good spirits; I have felt calm and relaxed; I have felt active and vigorous; I woke up feeling fresh and rested; my day has been filled with things that interest me (all of the time, most of the time, more than half of the time, less than half of the time, some of the time, never). The total score on all statements is multiplied by 4 to get a score that has a maximum value of 100.
  • Nurses: Number of nurses per 1,000 people. Data is for 2000.
  • Nurses and midwives > Per 1,000 people: Nurses and midwives (per 1,000 people). Nurses and midwives include professional nurses, professional midwives, auxiliary nurses, auxiliary midwives, enrolled nurses, enrolled midwives and other associated personnel, such as dental nurses and primary care nurses.
  • Nutrition > Depth of hunger > Kilocalories per person per day: Depth of hunger or the intensity of food deprivation, indicates how much food-deprived people fall short of minimum food needs in terms of dietary energy. The food deficit, in kilocalories per person per day, is measured by comparing the average amount of dietary energy that undernourished people get from the foods they eat with the minimum amount of dietary energy they need to maintain body weight and undertake light activity. The depth of hunger is low when it is less than 200 kilocalories per person per day, and high when it is higher than 300 kilocalories per person per day."
  • Obesity: Percentage of total population who have a BMI (body mass index) greater than 30 Kg/sq.meters (Data for Australia, Austria and Portugal is from 2002. All other data is from 2003). Obesity rates are defined as the percentage of the population with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 30. The BMI is a single number that evaluates an individual's weight status in relation to height (weight/height2, with weight in kilograms and height in metres). For Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States, figures are based on health examinations, rather than self-reported information. Obesity estimates derived from health examinations are generally higher and more reliable than those coming from self-reports, because they preclude any misreporting of people's height and weight. However, health examinations are only conducted regularly in a few countries (OECD).

Germany, the synonym of efficiency and expediency, is proud to have one of the best health care systems in Europe: when the skill and competence of medical staff was assessed by its users, Germany scored the fourth place in Europe, with other indicators being evaluated slightly worse. However, Germany is an aging nation with dependency ratio (the proportion of people under 15 and above 64 years of age to the working population) of 52.13% in 2012 and birth rate of only 8.4 live births per 1.000 people, which is the third lowest in the world (higher only than birth rates in Hong Kong and Macau). Nowadays, Germany depends a lot on the import of skilled labour to maintain the smooth work of the public sector, and that includes doctors. In fact, many of the hospitals, especially in the far North of the country, depend on doctors, coming predominantly from countries of Eastern Europe only recently becoming members of European Union, such as Czech Republic and Poland. They are attracted to Germany by higher wages backed by many incentives to specialist doctors coming to work at smaller hospitals - paid apartment, paid card, and language courses for all family members. This is in sharp contrast to the German immigrant policy of the past few decades, when a huge influx of immigrants, especially from Turkey, was blamed for rising unemployment rates, and in fact the year 2011 was marked as the first year in more than a decade with positive growth of population - due mainly to immigration.
