    To analyse the variability of cost assessment in health care, we proposed to study the variability of cost factors, i.e. the variables on which cost assessment is based in different countries. Two validated tools are used: Euclidean distance and Principal Component Analysis. The method involves four stages: (i) identification of potential variability factors, selection of final variability factors, constitution of variability areas; (ii) measure of the distances between variability areas; (iii) analysis of the distances using of Principal Component Analysis; (iiii) measure of distances within variability areas. The application of the method to an innovative and costly innovation demonstrates the functionality of this approach. Classification JEL : I10, D80
