|Further data development / collection required:||Specification: Interim. |
Greater standardisation of definitions required—particularly the asset capitalisation cut-off value. Add new data item on capital expenditure to the existing Government Health Expenditure National Minimum Data Set (NMDS); consult regarding scope and inclusions.
|Other issues caveats:||The ideal indicator in this area is a measure of the total real value of the capital stock and its change over time, and the average age of capital equipment. It is possible to develop such a measure over time, but because of inconsistencies in accounting practices between jurisdictions and across the private and public sectors, it is difficult to develop a measure which is comparable.|
