Table 3 Concentration indices for total costs, total costs as a proportion of pre-TB annual household income and catastrophic costs due to TB care, among TBa affected households in China (2017) (n = 1147)

From: Inequity in catastrophic costs among tuberculosis-affected households in China

Costs due to TB care Concentration index (95% CI)*
Total costs Total costs as proportion of AHI Catastrophic costs
Pre-TB treatment 0.172 (0.113, 0.231) −0.429 (− 0.528, − 0.331) − 0.277 (− 0.327, − 0.227)
TB Treatment 0.199 (0.140, 0.259) − 0.377 (− 0.449, − 0.305) − 0.306 (− 0.351, − 0.261)
TB care (pre-TB treatment and treatment) 0.186 (0.145–0.228) −0.402 (− 0.466, − 0.338) −0.169 (− 0.197, − 0.141)
