Revision to Health Care and Welfare Expenditures 1983-98

Up to now there has been a break in local authority expenditures for health care between 1998 and 1999 where Health Care drops from £52.92 billion in 1998 down to £45.76 billion in 1999. This arises because in PESA 1998-99 through PESA 2003 health care expenditures of local authorities includes "Personal Services." But starting with PESA 2004 the Personal Services for health are included under Social Protection, which is represented on this site as "Welfare".  In the data between 1983 and 1992 reported in PESA 1998-99 health care expenditures are reported as "Health and personal social services" and "Health".
We have now rearranged the health care and welfare data so that the personal social services related to health are always included under Welfare.  This means that the amounts reported for health care (central government plus local authority) between 1983 and 1998 will be reduced as follows:
