Accessibility of dental services according to family income in a non-insured population.
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of family income on accessibility to dental services among adults in Norway.
The analysis was performed on a set of national data collected in 1989, which was representative of the non-institutionalized Norwegian population aged 20 years and above.
The sample size was 1200 individuals.
The data were analyzed according to a two-part model.
The first part determined the probability of whether the consumer had demanded the services or not during the last year according to family income.
The second part estimated how the amount of services utilized depended on family income, for those with demand.
The elasticity of the odds of having demanded the services with respect to family income was 0.48.
Family income had no effect on the amount of services utilized.
