Abstract

This paper describes how to calculate average health care costs broken down by age, sex and neighbourhood deprivation quintile group using the distribution of health care spending by the English NHS in the financial year 2011/12. The results presented here can be used by costeffectiveness analysts to populate their extrapolation models when estimating future health care costs. The results will also be of interest to the broader community of health researchers as they illustrate how NHS spending is distributed across different subgroups within the population.
