(b) Mid-year estimates of resident population—1987 to 1991 (Office of Population, Censuses and Surveys).


1. The figures for the DHAs are based upon their total revenue expenditure on the services which they managed or accounted for in the relevant financial years. Those for 1991–92 cover their total revenue expenditure including that on purchases of health care and directly related services, administrative and purchasing functions and other expenditure.

2. Capital expenditure incurred by the DHAs and all expenditure incurred by the North East Thames Regional Health Authority is excluded. Expenditure on family health services, which is accounted for by Family Health Services Authorities and cannot strictly be attributed to particular districts, is similarly excluded.

3. The population figures used make no allowance for residents of particular districts who receive treatment in others. The figures used for mid 1991 are provisional and based on the 1991 census.
