    How would you rate the quality of health services?

    This indicator is based on a question surveying the quality of the national health care system. Respondents choose on scale of one to ten, with 10 being of very high quality and 1 being of very low quality. The other two non-numerical options are "don't know" and "refusal."

    Quality of national health service

    Participants were asked to grade the quality of health services in their country on a scale of 1 to 10, with "10" ranked best and "1" ranked worst. Other answers included refusal to answer or do not know.
