Abstract

Much recent quantitative comparative research on the welfare state fails to appropriately incorporate time-series variation into more typically studied cross-sectional models, and correctly specify and estimate the ways in which constant state characteristics such as corporatism influence within-nation changes in welfare spending. In reanalysing data we demonstrate that when properly exploiting time-series data in the analyses, age structure has stronger effects on welfare spending than previously recognised, and that state characteristics such as corporatism have interactive effects that facilitate the influence of percent aged. -from Authors
