Studies of health and long-term care expenditure growth in aging populations

  • Claudine de Meijer Claudine de Meijer

The thesis consists of three parts. Part A provides a general overview of the current state of the literature on the causes and consequences of HCE growth in aging populations. Although the impact of population aging on acute HCE has been studied abundantly, few studies have analyzed its influence on LTC expenditures. Part B therefore investigates the impact of population aging on LTC expenditures in the Netherlands in greater depth. Part C further disentangles the contribution of several factors to acute HCE growth.
