Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Report: "Health System Expenditure on Disease and Injury in Australia 2000-01," (Health and Welfare Expenditure Series No. 19, May 2004, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

This publication presents estimates of health expenditure on disease and injury in Australia in 2000-01, classified by disease or injury group, age and sex. The estimates are available by area of expenditure - hospitals, high-level residential aged care, medical services, other professional services, pharmaceuticals and research. The 2000-01 disease expenditure estimates were based on the 176 disease and injury conditions used in the first Australian burden of disease study (AIHW: Mathers et al. 1999), with the inclusion of some additional sub-categories. This report aggregates these conditions into the 19 broad disease groups used by the burden of disease study. Disease expenditure estimates are also presented for selected conditions in the seven National Health Priority Areas and by age and sex.

_Demographic Research_ Article: Note: _DR_ is "a free, expedited, peer-reviewed journal of the population sciences published by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research." "Fertility and Public Policies - Evidence from Norway and Finland," by Marit Ronsen (Vol. 10, Art. 6, May 2004, .pdf format, p. 144-170).

Abstract:

The relatively high and rising fertility rates of Nordic countries in the late 1980s and early 1990s sparked a renewed research interest in the possible pronatalistic effects of generous family policy programs. Several studies have addressed this issue, but few have tried to model policy effects explicitly. The existing evidence so far is mainly from Sweden, where policy indicators have been incorporated in economic fertility models that also control for female wages. This paper complements previous Swedish analyses with evidence from Norway and Finland. The results corroborate earlier findings of a negative effect of female wages. There are also indications of a positive policy impact, as maternity leave extensions are estimated to raise birth rates, although mainly higher parity births and mainly in Finland.

Kaiser Family Foundation Online Chartbook, Issue Brief, Report:

A. "Trends and Indicators in the Changing Health Care Marketplace, 2004 Update." "The Kaiser Family Foundation --through its Changing Health Care Marketplace Project -- conducts research and analysis on trends in the marketplace, particularly as they affect vulnerable groups like the poor and the elderly, and on policy proposals that involve the private health care system. There have been striking changes in the health care marketplace in the last few years. Some of these changes build on historic trends; others depart, sometimes dramatically, from prior expectations about how the marketplace would evolve. Trends and Indicators in the Changing Health Care Marketplace, 2004 Update (April 2004) presents information on key trends in the health care marketplace of interest to policymakers, public interest groups, the media, and industry analysts and leaders. This chartbook updates many of the exhibits included in earlier reports, Trends and Indicators in the Changing Health Care Marketplace, 2002 (May 2002) and Trends and Indicators in the Changing Health Care Marketplace (August 1998).

"Medicaid: A Critical Source of Support for Family Planning in the United States" (KFF Issue Brief, April 2004, .pdf format, 12p.)."Nationwide, Medicaid is the largest source of public funding for family planning services. The Alan Guttmacher Institute and the Kaiser Family Foundation have prepared this issue brief titled, 'Medicaid: A Critical Source of Support for Family Planning in the United States' to provide an overview and new analysis about the important role that Medicaid plays in financing family planning services to low-income women across the nation."

Abstract:

Lack of health insurance coverage for low-income adults remains a pressing policy challenge. In 2002, low-income adults who were uninsured accounted for nearly half of the uninsured population. This report provides an overview of non-elderly adult eligibility for and enrollment in Medicaid and state-funded coverage, nationally and in 13 study states.

WORKING PAPERS:

Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) [Bonn, Germany]: "Understanding the Effects of Early Motherhood in Britain: The Effects on Mothers," by Greg Kaplan, Alissa Goodman, Ian Walker (Discussion Paper No. 1131, .pdf format, 31p.).

Abstract:

This paper examines the socio-economic consequences of teenage motherhood for a cohort of British women born in 1970. We employ a number of methods to control for observed and unobserved differences between women who gave birth as a teenager and those who do not. We present results from conventional linear regression models, a propensity score matching estimator, and an instrumental variable estimator that uses miscarriage data to control for unobserved characteristics influencing selection into teenage motherhood. We consider the effects on equivalised family income at age 30, and its constituent parts. We find significant negative effects of teenage motherhood using methods that control only for observed characteristics using linear regression or matching methods. However once unobserved heterogeneity is also taken into account, the evidence for large negative effects becomes much less clear-cut. We look at older and younger teenage mothers separately and find that the negative effects are not necessarily stronger for teenagers falling pregnant before age 18 compared with those falling pregnant between 18 and 20, which could further suggest that some of the negative effects of teenage motherhood are temporary.
