Health, United States, 2000 with Adolescent Health Chart-book


United States totaled almost $1.15 trillion, increasing
less than 6 percent from the previous year and
continuing the slowdown in growth of the 1990’s.
During the 1980’s national health expenditures grew at
an average annual rate of 11 percent (table 115).

Despite the slowdown in the growth of health
spending, the United States continues to spend a larger
share of GDP on health than any other major
industrialized country. The United States devoted
13.4 percent of GDP to health in 1997 compared with
about 10–11 percent each in Germany, Switzerland,
and France, the countries with the next highest shares.
