Abstract

We measure the productivity of the health care sector over time by comparing the total amount of health care ‘output’ produced to the total amount of ‘input’ used to produce this output in accordance with Eurostat conventions (Eurostat, 2001). To construct a time series, we need to account for changes in routine data collection procedures, such as data coverage and changing activity definitions. To do this we construct a series of chained indices for both output and input growth in consecutive years. This allows us to calculate a like-with-like productivity growth series for the English National Health Service for the time period from 2004/5 to 2011/12.
