Explaining variations in prescribing costs across England.
To derive a predictive model for national prescribing behaviour in terms of basic morbidity and demographic factors.
Design-24 demographic, morbidity, and practice factors were entered into a multiple regression analysis to determine the net ingredient cost per patient.
Setting-The 90 family health service authorities in England for 1989.
For net ingredient cost per patient only two demographic factors (numbers of pensioners and the mobility of the registered population measured by list inglation) and two morbidity related factors (standardised mortality ratios and numbers of prepayment certificates issued) significantly contributed to a multiple regression model.
