Abstract The National Public Health Compass provides an online overview of the current state of public health in the Netherlands. The Compass contains largely the same information as the Dutch Public Health Status and Forecasts Reports, the 2002 edition of which showed stagnation of public health improvement. This highlights the role of these overviews in the signalling of public health problems. The quality of the reporting on public health has been shown to be high and the reports are successful in providing information for Dutch health policy. However, if the Dutch are to regain their leading position in Europe, more policy efforts are required.
