The distributional impact of government outlays on the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in 2001-02

1 Oct 2003
Description

In recent years outlays on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme have increased rapidly, prompting both attempts by government to reduce growth in outlays and renewed interest in the characteristics of the beneficiaries of the Scheme. This paper, using a microsimulation model of the PBS, analyses the distributional impact of Commonwealth Government outlays on the PBS, by such characteristics as family income, family type, age, gender and lifecycle group.
