Social sector is a very important sector among other sectoral services for any governmental set up. It is imperative for any government to take sufficient care about education and health services in the relevant service sectors. Since community health is an essential subject it needs prior investigation for any governmental set up to give due importance in this respect. Gujarat state in India is considered to be a progressive state with good and efficient governance since its inception. Gujarat state is also considered to be one of the richest states in India. It may be worthwhile to examine and evaluate about the health expenditure pattern incurred by the state government. In this paper a statistical analysis is carried out to build up a model approach by means of considering semi log linear models for the total expenses by the state government in health sector and also total budgetary expenses during the year 2004-2014. Based upon the fitted model projections are carried out and prior estimates are obtained which may be made useful for state planning exercises.
