Table 3 Incidence and intensity of catastrophic expenditure for different thresholds

From: Catastrophic out-of-pocket payments for households of people with severe mental disorder: a comparative study in rural Ethiopia

Sample Threshold Overshoot at 10% Mean positive overshoot at 10%
5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 40%
As a proportion of total consumption
 HH of a person with SMD 42.7 20.3 16.5 12.1 4.5 1.2 1.9 9.7
 HH without a person with SMD 41.7 15.6 15.4 12.0 2.6 0.0 1.2 7.6
Sample Threshold Overshoot at 40%+ Mean positive overshoot at 40%+
5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 40%
As a proportion of capacity to pay
 HH of a person with SMD 89.6* 74.3 65.7 62.2 48.3 32.2** 6.7* 21.2
