This paper examines the recent review of the Resource Allocation Working Party formula for allocating resources to the regions in the National Health Service from which the current formula is derived.
Increasingly public resources are allocated by means of formulae which are based on multiple-regression techniques which attempt to model need.
The paper highlights some of the statistical and methodological problems in developing such formulae using resource allocation in the National Health Service as a case study.
The statistical approach of the review is subjected to a rigorous critique and ways of improving the method are suggested.
