THREE ISLANDS IN THE SEA OF DATA: OBSERVATIONS ON OUT OF POCKET EXPENDITURE, ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND HYSTERECTOMY

This seminar will demonstrate creative possibilities for the use of high-quality survey and routinely collected statistical information to address health-related questions that have demographic and public health elements.

Three published studies will be presented dealing with the out-of-pocket expenditure on health care and alcohol consumption in Australia, and changes in the incidence of hysterectomy in New South Wales over the past 30 years.

All three studies were based on ABS surveys (Household Expenditure Survey, 2009-10 and National Health Surveys, 2001 and 2011-12), and de-identified hospital discharge summaries in New South Wales, 1981 to 2010-12.
