OECD Preventive Health Services Coverage Indicators

$179 / year

This dataset contains indicators for the preventive health services coverage by the type of preventive method and target disease in country members and partners of OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) and for countries in accession negotiations with OECD. The indicators values cover the period 1980-2016.

Complexity

This dataset is provided by OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. OECD’s work is based on continued monitoring of events in member countries as well as outside OECD area, and includes regular projections of short and medium-term economic developments. The OECD Secretariat collects and analyses data, after which committees discuss policy regarding this information, the Council makes decisions, and then governments implement recommendations. The OECD Health Datasets offers the most comprehensive source of comparable statistics on health and health systems across OECD countries. It is an essential tool to carry out comparative analyses and draw lessons from international comparisons of diverse health systems.

Screening indicators are based on two types of data depending on the country. More than half of the countries provided data collected by the screening programs and the rest of the countries provided survey-based data. The breast cancer screening indicator were calculated by dividing the number of women aged 50-69 who have received a bilateral mammography within the past two years (or according to the specific screening frequency recommended in each country) to the number of women aged 50-69 answering survey questions on mammography (for survey-based data) or eligible for an organized screening program (for program-based data). The indicators for cervical cancer screening were calculated by dividing number of women aged 20-69 who have been screened for cervical cancer within the past three years (or according to the specific screening frequency recommended in each country) divided by the number of women aged 20-69 answering the survey question (for survey-based data) or eligible for an organized screening program (for program-based data).

The second category of indicators are for immunizations and are as follows:

– The percentage of children under one year old who have received three doses of the combined diphteria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine (DTP) in a given year
– The percentage of children under one year old who have received at least one dose of measles containing vaccine in a given year
– Percentage of children under one year old who have received three doses of hepatitis B vaccine in a given year; immunization against Hepatitis B is mandatory in certain countries while it is only
optional in others; in countries like Sweden first dose of HepB vaccine is given only to neonates whose mother is HBsAg positive and for the rest of new-born population is recommended only for high risk groups (along with DTP and measles vaccine)
– The percentage of people aged 65 and over who have been immunized against influenza (or “flu”) during the last 12 months among the population aged 65 and over

Time series are completed based on national data for selected years.

Breaks in the time-related continuity of data on which the calculated indicators values are based are specified in the content of dataset. There are also specified the cases were the methodology used for data collection was different or if the values are estimated.
