  1. Note: F-test for SD (Microsoft Excel 2007 software), =SDt-12/SDt2, where t-1 (t = 2004, …, 2007) is the base year, and t is the year under test. The null hypothesis is SDt-12 ≤ SDt2. The F-test for CV is the same. * is significance at 5 %. SD and CV refer to standard deviation and coefficient of variation, respectively. GHE is the abbreviation of government health expenditure
