This volume is a comprehensive database on the health sector with respect to the outlays of four major states of India, namely, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Orissa, and Rajasthan for the period 1985-86 to 1994-95. The significance of this ten year period is that it can be used to assess the impact of the fiscal adjustment programme (beginning 1990-91) on this redistributive expenditure by analysing government financing of the health sector during the pre-and-post structural adjustment period.
