Abstract
Chinese government started the health care reform in 2000. The purpose of the reform is to provide better health care to the people living in China, as well as to make health care available to more residents. The first goal has been achieving gradually, yet the second one was compromised by the rapid increase of the out-of-pocket expenditure on health care. In this paper, we want to analyze the relationship between the increment of health care expenditure and other socioeconomic factors as the consequences of the health care reform, by using the Chinese Census data and the China Labor Statistical Yearbook (CLSY) data in province level. The results show that health care expenditure is correlated with income, household size, race, education level, age of residents, etc.
