This data brief pulls together the most current data available from multiple sources to provide an overview of national health spending. The brief covers:

  • trends in health spending growth and the problem of excess growth,
  •  the sectors driving increased spending,
  • the growth in public versus private spending, and
  • changes in consumer out-of-pocket spending.

This is the first in a series of data briefs on U.S. health care spending.
