AbstractOBJECTIVES: Using the POPULIS framework, this project estimated health care expenditures across the entire population of Manitoba for inpatient and outpatient hospital utilization, physician visits, mental health inpatient, and nursing home utilization. RESEARCH DESIGN: This estimated expenditure information was then used to compare per capita expenditures relative to premature mortality rates across the various areas of Manitoba. RESULTS: Considerable variation in health care expenditures was found, with those areas having high premature mortality rates also having higher health care expenditures.
