|Further data development / collection required:||Specification: Long-term |
Further data development is not required, but it would be desirable to collect information on public health program expenditure by local governments, to make this indicator more comparable across the jurisdictions.
|Other issues caveats:||It would be useful to further standardise some of the public health expenditure categories such as ‘selected health promotion’, and collect information on public health activities conducted by non-health government departments.
The data quality statement should reflect that additional work to capture all public expenditure (through avenues other than health-based), should be undertaken.
