The health of the Dutch

A healthy people! Eight out of ten Dutch people rate their health as good or even very good. This is apparent from figures from Statistics Netherlands (CBS).

The majority of Dutch people feel healthy However, four percent of those surveyed consider their health to be poor or very poor.

Men vs. women
A remarkable result of the CBS survey is that men feel healthier than women :82 percent of men rate their health as good or very good compared to 78 percent of women. CBS attributes this difference to the fact that women generally live longer than men and that they are more likely to suffer from long-term conditions. People with long-term conditions feel unhealthy more often.
