Good health care

If you fall ill in Germany, you are always sure to find a doctor. In 2014, there were around four doctors for every 1,000 inhabitants in Germany. While Austria led the rankings with five doctors per 1,000 inhabitants, Ireland and Luxemburg were at the bottom of the list with fewer than tree. Per capita, Germans spent over 5,119 US dollars on private and public health care in 2014. In the EU-28 zone, only the Dutch paid more for their health care, with 5,277 US dollars. Thanks to sound medical care, girls and boys born in Germany in 2014 had a life expectancy of 83.6 or 78.7 years respectively.
