The Directorate of Health collects data and compiles statistics on a number of health care and health promotion issues. It also produces statistics on communicable diseases, other diseases and causes of death, on surgical procedures, induced abortions and sterilisations, as well as collecting data on prescription drug use, patient complaints and accidents.
The menu on the left links you to statistical data on most of these subjects in the form of Excel tables with titles and headings in English as well as Icelandic.
