Evaluating Contending Theories Against a Longitunal and Cross-sectional Data Set" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Philadelphia Marriott Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 27, 2003 <Not Available>. 2019-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p63865_index.html>

Abstract: On the basis of a new and original data set ten years in the making, the
authors explain the sources of socialist party reformism and radicalism in
18 countries in Europe, North America and Australasia prior to World War
I. In this paper, we evaluate the validity and persuasiveness of
alternative hypotheses with a structural equation model against the data
we have gathered. In so doing, we build on, and partly refute,
explanations put forward by Seymour Martin Lipset (in his Presidential
Address to the APSA), Peter Katzenstein (in Small States), and Adam
Przeworski and Henry Teune (in Paper Stones).

Abstract: This essay has as its primary purpose the detailing of a procedure to calculate
the extent of descriptive and substantive representation offered by a given districting
plan, and to compare proposed plans with a baseline in order to assess retrogression.
We also apply our procedure to the Georgia Senate redistricting plan at issue
in Ashcroft and show that it would have, in fact, increased the substantive
representation of minority interests. We conclude with some thoughts about the
current state of race and representation in the United States, and the implications
of our findings for Section 5 renewal.

"The Impact of Democracy on Public Welfare Expenditure: A Cross-Sectional Analysis" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Sep 01, 2005 <Not Available>. 2019-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p41898_index.html>

Abstract: This paper analyzes empirically the effect of democracy on public welfare expenditure with regression analysis. The dependent variable is operationalized as public welfare expenditure on pensions, health, and education as a share of GDP. The independent variable is the level of democracy, which is measured with the Freedom House democracy index. Based upon the regression analysis, it is concluded that the higher the level of democracy, the bigger the size of public welfare expenditure. However, this result does not correspond with that of the longitudinal case study in which time-series changes of democracy and public social expenditure are compared in three countries. I explain the discrepancy between the cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses with the narrowness of the measurement scale of the Freedom House democracy index and the misspecification of the regression models.

Abstract: Abstract: This paper examines the relative impacts of economic growth and good
governance on human development (HD) performance in the sub-national states
of India from the 1980s to the early 2000s to test whether the strong and positive
impact good governance has had on HD in the Indian state of Kerala is anomalous
or typical. The paper begins with a bounded and theoretically developed
conceptualization of good governance to cover the three core dimensions of
leadership priorities, state capacity, and policy implementation. Measures of these
three core dimensions taken from recent field study in India are then compiled into
a good governance index suited to the specific context of federal India’s subnational
states over the last three decades. Employing cross-sectional regression
analysis and incorporating checks for robustness, we find that in almost every
case good governance explains more of human development outcomes (in
education, health, and longevity) than does economic growth, per capita
investment, or per capita incomes.
