Abstract [sv]

In Sweden the time patients spend on different waiting lists is regularly analysed in follow-up surveys and published on the Internet, but when these figures do not differ between men and women there is an interesting demand for analysing the figures separately for the sexes. With the aim of investigating gender differences we have analysed the time spent on 32 different waiting lists by 44,000 patients in hospital health care including surgery, orthopaedics, otorhinolaryngology, ophthalmology and thoracic surgery. When controlling for the patients' medical need and age we found that there were few significant gender differences regarding the time spent waiting for an appointment or elective surgery. Our conclusion is that it is not sufficient to draw conclusions on unadjusted figures for waiting lists for men and women respectively. Instead we recommend regularly performing regression analysis based on individual raw data.
