EL GASTO SANITARIO PÚBLICO EN ESPAÑA Y SU CONTRIBUCIÓN A LOS NIVELES DE SALUD Y LA PRODUCTIVIDAD
Berta Rivera Castiñeira
This paper analyzes the effect of public health spending on productivity and its influence on the individual health-status. From a descriptive approximation the results suggest that health resources are positively associated with the population health-status measured by subjective indicators. We then develop an extension of the Solow model, which includes current and capital health spending. The estimations use a regional panel data and suggest that current health spending has consistently effects, while investment in health care has no effect on productivity. Classification-JEL : N10, J24, I10
Health-status, public health spending, productivity.
