Title
  • Characteristics of demand for antibiotics in primary care: an almost ideal demand system approach
Author

Physical Description
  • preprint
Notes
  • We model demand for different classes of antibiotics used for respiratory infections in outpatient care using a linear approximate almost ideal demand system approach. We compute elasticities to socioeconomic determinants of consumption and own- and cross- price elasticities between different groups of antibiotics. We find significant elasticities between newer/​more expensive generations and older/​less expensive generations of antibiotics. The larger use of more expensive antibiotics is also associated with the self-dispensing status of practices, ceteris paribus.
