Euthanasia statistics in the Netherlands

On average, about 11 people a day were killed by Dutch physicians following euthanasia protocols in 2012.  The total (4,188) represents an increase of 13% over the previous year.  Some researchers believe that the increase is the result of greater acceptance of the procedure by physicians and the public.  80% of the patients were killed in their homes. [Expat Journal- Dutch News]
