    Abstract

    With the ever increasing cost of providing hospital and other health services,
    it is vital to have an accurate understanding of the different health needs of
    various categories of hospital users - for example the rich versus the poor,
    or city versus bush dwellers. For this study we started with a 1998-99
    person-based NSW hospitals dataset, and imputed onto this dataset from the
    1996 Census, at the Collection District level, socioeconomic variables such
    as equivalent family income and an area-based index of socioeconomic
    disadvantage.

    In this paper we report on unique evidence from this combined dataset
    regarding the socioeconomic, demographic, distributional, health and
    spatial characteristics of those NSW residents who used NSW private
    or public hospital services in 1998-99. Questions addressed in the paper
    include: who benefited most/least that year from government funding to
    NSW hospitals - across socioeconomic classes, age, sex and geographic regions.
