Usando la teoría de la elección podemos establecer cómo ciertas características poblacionales inciden sobre los perfiles de gasto en salud de los hogares colombianos. El enfoque está basado en el trabajo de Deaton de 1980, según el cual el conjunto de elección de los individuos es la intersección del conjunto presupuestal y el conjunto de consumo. En el análisis de los perfiles de gasto en salud se utiliza un enfoque de análisis de varianza tomando datos de la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida de 1997. En general se encuentra que los hogares gastan el 9,62% de sus ingresos corrientes en salud, y se muestran las variables socioeconómicas y demográficas de los hogares que más contribuyen a explicar el perfil de gasto.
