Quantifying Workfare

Constructing a Dataset on Social Benefit Conditionality
Funded by Crafoord stiftelsen (2014-2015).

Alongside reductions in benefit generosity, making benefits conditional on one’s willingness to look for and accept employment constitutes a leading trend over the last few decades.

An extensive qualitative literature discusses the expansion of the ‘workfare state’ (Peck 2001), though lack of comparative data impedes research on its pervasiveness and therein the nature of welfare state change more generally across time and space.

We are constructing a cross-sectional time series dataset for 22 advanced industrialized countries between 1980 and 2013.
