    [8th ed.]

    This eighth edition of the International Health Data Reference Guide provides information collected in mid-1997 on the availability of selected national vital, hospital, health manpower resources, and population-based health survey statistics. Information for the 44 nations included in this guide was obtained from the government and official agencies that are listed in the guide for further reference.

    The main purpose of the guide is to provide information not readily available in published form. It is not designed to provide information on the availability of measures considered universally documented, such as crude birth and death rates or life expectancy at birth. A secondary purpose is to support the World Health Organization’s goal of developing a common basis for international data comparison.

    The reader should carefully note the listed qualifications in the footnotes concerning the availability of data in several countries.

    The user of this guide is encouraged to contact the listed government and official agencies to obtain specific data.
