Inter-sectoral costs and benefits (ICBs), i.e. costs and benefits of healthcare interventions outside the healthcare sector, can be an important cost component in economic evaluations from a societal perspective. Pivotal to the estimation of ICBs is the existence of sound instruments to measure such service use. The objective of this review was to systematically collate and assess resource-use measurement instruments for ICBs, especially for the educational and criminal justice sector.
