Impact of a Political Regime on Public Funding of Education and Healthcare
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
This study is devoted to research of the impact of political regime on public funding of education and healthcare in various countries. Its specificity lies in the low level of knowledge of the problem. The aim of the study is to identify the presence and characteristics of links between the studied variables. Modern political theory is of the opinion that the increase in financing social sphere is more typical of democracies. However, in many areas this question is contradictory and ambiguous. Accordingly, a hypothesis of the study is the following: in democratic regimes the financing of education and healthcare is carried out in larger relative volumes in comparison with non-democratic regimes.

The practical part of the work consists of two studies. The first study is performed using cross-correlation analysis to detect the time lag of response of dependent variables (public funding of education and healthcare) on the change of the independent variable (the political regime). In this part are studied exclusively democracy. The second study is performed using a panel regression analysis and covered the maximum possible sample of countries, which does not include only those states, which during the study period (1996-2013) did not maintain statistics.
