Provides estimates of total expenditure on health services in Australia for 1989-90 to 1998-99. Expenditure estimates are presented at the aggregate level, as a proportion of gross domestic product (GDP), on a per person basis and by source of funding - Commonwealth, other government and non-government. For the second year, experimental health expenditure matrices for all States and Territories are presented. In this edition they cover the years 1996-97 and 1997-98. As in previous issues, detailed national data on particular areas of expenditure are included. These also cover the two years 1996-97 and 1997-98. The bulletin will be helpful to anyone interested in studying, analysing and comparing measures of health services expenditure in Australia.
