Geographic variation in GP use is a persistent finding across Australia. Some of this variation may be warranted, reflecting differences in, for example, population health status. However, variation may also be indicative of health care inefficiency and inequity. This paper examines the amount of geographic variation in GP use, and the factors that influence that variation. Results suggest that health care needs, age, obesity, lower socio-economic status are significant drivers of health care use. The availability of more GPs is also associated with higher GP use but the supply of more specialists reduces the use of GPs. A better understanding of the sources of the geographic variation can inform policy interventions to prioritise resource allocation and improve health care delivery efficiency.

The aim of paper is to assess the level of income needed in retirement to maintain a satisfactory life and slow the rate of health decline. This is an alternative to the usual assessment of the adequacy of income in retirement based on pre-retirement income replacement. Using the HILDA data from Australia, this paper estimates the short and long term health effects of retirement accounting for the simultaneity of health and retirement in an instrumental variable panel data econometric model. We initially assume that human, and financial capital is exogenous at retirement. The results suggest that retirement has a positive effect on health and wellbeing initially but in the longer term has a negative effect on health mitigated by pension income and wealth. Health in the bottom income quintile wears out a good deal faster after retirement than does health in the top quintile, and in the bottom quintile men’s health deteriorates more rapidly than women’s health.
