A Quantitative Study on the Determinants of Welfare Spending

  • Ingmar J. Schustereder


Applying a set of various pooled cross-section time series models, Chapter 8 will conduct a quantitative analysis in order to test prevailing theories on the driving forces behind the contemporary welfare state. The dataset will include 17 OECD countries for the time period 1975-2000. Before presenting the econometric approach and the respective empirical findings in close detail, the author will analyze current patterns of public social spending across advanced welfare economies.
