This page has links to data tables and data cubes containing detailed health expenditure and public health expenditure information.
Additional disaggregation of data may be requested via a customised data request. The length of time it takes to complete a request depends on a number of factors and a charge may apply to recover costs.
Changes to the calculation of GDP has meant that deflators and therefore time-series for National health expenditure are only available back to 1985–86. Previously, data has been available back to 1960–61. There are two cubes for both national and state and territory data sets because of a break in time series between 2002–03 and 2003–04. Cubes containing data up to and including 2002–03 report public hospital expenditure. Cubes covering the period 2003–04 onwards contain expenditure on public hospital services. Refer to Technical notes, Chapter 5 in Health expenditure in Australia 2011–12 for an explanation of the terms 'public hospitals' and 'public hospital services'.
Note: Cubes open in new window.
Prior to 2009–10, the data cubes included information on total Australian Government specific purpose payments (SPPs) to states and territories. This excel table splits the SPPs to public hospitals into Australian Health Care Agreements (AHCAs) funding and other SPPs.
From 1 January 2009, the new federal financial framework came into effect and the National Healthcare Agreement became the major source of funding of health activities by the state and territory governments. Under the financial arrangements agreed by Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in November 2008, there was a major rationalisation of the number of payments to the states and territories, reducing the number of major special purpose payments from over 90 to five, of which one is the National Healthcare Agreement. The Australian Government also provides National Partnership (NP) payments to fund specific projects.
Below is a link to a series of excel tables showing government capital consumption by area of expenditure, by state and territory, in current prices, 1996–97 onwards. The estimates of total capital consumption for each of the states and territories and for the Australian Government, were sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics government finance statistics. The state, territory and Australian Government splits of capital consumption by area of expenditure have required the use of allocation factors derived from data supplied to the AIHW by the state and territory health authorities and the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing, respectively.
