This paper explores the relationship between public health expenditure and self-assessed health status. Medical resources are imputed according to where individuals reside. The analysis draws upon data from the 1993 National Health Survey. Controlling for a number of individual characteristics, which also determine health status, the estimations indicate that increases in public health expenditure significantly improve both physiological and physical health. The results remain consistent when the model is reestimated and the change in the probability at the mean of the independent variable is calculated.
