A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF POVERTY AND SOCIAL PROTECTION EXPENDITURE ACROSS EUROPE
The objective of this study is to provide some empirical evidences regarding the trends of poverty and social protection expenditures. We are involving a small sample of 27 countries (EU27) for an observation time span between 2005 and 2009. The percentage of total population at risk of poverty and the expenditure per inhabitant reported by Eurostat is used as criteria of analysis. We conclude that social protection expenditure doesn't have a clear direct impact on poverty. JEL classification: H53, I38fatcat:pnvwq4qobrbd3enhu7jghrybga
