Prescription Drugs: U.S. Prices for Selected Brand Drugs Were Higher on Average Than Prices in Australia, Canada, and France, Report to the Chairman, Committee on the Budget, U.S. Senate
United States. Government Accountability Office
From the Highlights: "While spending on prescription drugs continues to grow worldwide, studies indicate the U.S. spends more than other countries. However, various factors--such as country-specific pricing strategies, confidential rebates to payers, and other price concessions--may obscure the actual prices of prescription drugs. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review U.S. and international prescription drug prices. This report (1) examines how prices at the retail and manufacturer levels in the U.S. compare to prices in three selected comparison countries-- Australia, Canada, and France, and (2) provides information on consumers' out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs in these countries."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
