Table 9.2 will be of interest as it shows total identifiable expenditure on services by country and region, per head between 2012-13 and 2016-17.

Table 9.2 data for earlier years can be found in past editions of PESA. For example data back to 2011-12 is available in the 2017 edition of PESA, whilst data for 2010-11 is available in the 2016 edition. A link to a webpage collecting past and present editions of PESA is provided below:
