Good health care

If you fall ill in Germany, you are always sure to find a doctor. In 2015, there were around four doctors for every 1,000 inhabitants in Germany. While Austria led the rankings with five doctors per 1,000 inhabitants, Latvia and Croatia were at the bottom of the list with three. Per capita, Germans spent over 5,267 US dollars on private and public health care in 2015. In the EU-28 zone, only the Dutch with 5,342 US dollars and the Luxembourger with 7,764 US dollars paid more for their health care. Thanks to sound medical care, girls and boys born in Germany in 2015 had a life expectancy of 83.6 or 78.7 years respectively.
