Lessons from the Analysis of Social Expenditure
Author: Yaakov Kop Policy Research

Social services in Israel, although provided in several frameworks, may be divided into two major blocs: 1) income maintenance, that is, cash benefits; and 2) services provided in-kind: health; education; personal welfare; housing; immigrant absorption; and employment.

Most of this report is addressed to government activity in these fields, because of our special interest in government social policy as expressed by its pattern of resource allocation. Furthermore, the government’s financial role in social affairs is most often decisive – and, frequently, all-inclusive.
