Does Health-Care Spending Crowd Out Other Provincial Government Expenditures?
Health spending, the largest component of provincial government spending, has risen significantly over the past decade. It has been asserted that larger health expenditures have caused provincial governments to spend less on other types of government services. Using a panel of province-level data for the period 1988/89 to 2003/04, this study provides a test of the hypothesis that health spending has crowded out other types of spending. The results indicate that, for the period studied, there is no evidence that increased provincial government health expenditures resulted in lower levels of spending on other categories of government provided goods and services.
