Abstract: The paper focuses on GDP per capita in PPS (standard purchas­ing power) in C5 countries (Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia and Hungary). The basic aggregates in the comparison of the indicator include the density of population, employment per thousand persons, and expend­iture on pensions. The period for the given comparison is from 2011 to 2021. Other comparisons of indicators that the authors made in this paper were focused in the context of health care expenditure including years of healthy life, proportion of people 65+, occupational accidents, discharge from hos­pital, and length of stay. For this comparison, the period of 2014-2020 is tak­en into account. The data sources for the given paper are data from the Eu­rostat portal. The paper aims to perform a correlation analysis (Pearson cor­relation coefficient) of the basic indicators related to GDP per capita accord­ing to PPS and healthcare expenditure within the C5 countries
