Social Service Innovation in the American States: De-institutionalization of the Mentally Retarded.
Sigelman, Lee; And Others
Social Science Quarterly, v62 n3 p503-15 Sep 1981
This analysis of American states' deinstitutionalization of mentally retarded citizens found considerable interstate variation in policy and no consistent internal policy toward deinstitutionalization for other groups (i.e. juvenile offenders). Political culture and legislative capability were the strongest predictors of state use of community based facilities, while affluence was the weakest. (AM)
