Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between ageing and the development in the aggregate health care expenditure in EU countries on a macroeconomic level when economic and institutional variables are included. The results of the model will be used to extrapolate the total health care expenditure for the next 10 years.

Keywords: demographic changes, aggregate health-care, health-care expenditure, Europe, health-care, ageing
