USA - Accounting for the Rise of Health Spending and Longevity

This study by Québec researchers investigates the rise of health spending and longevity in the US over the period 1965-2005. It estimates that technological change and more generous health insurance explain 36% of the health-spending rise. Technological change, taking the form of increased healthcare productivity, explains most of the rise in life expectancy over the study’s 40-year period.
