This statistical atlas presents key health figures for the WHO European Region. They cover basic demographic data: mortality and morbidity; lifestyles and environmental indicators such as alcohol consumption, and road traffic accidents; and types and levels of health care. Most indicators are presented as a map to show overall regional variations - a bar chart to indicate country rankings, and a time chart to show trends over time in three main country groupings.

Using the WHO Regional Office for Europe's unique health for all database, combined with the best alternative sources of data around the region, this atlas offers the most comprehensive overview of health in Europe. Published in a pocket edition, this atlas is designed to be an easily accessible resource at all times, in the office or in the field.
