Politics, Public Policy, and the Development of Community Mental Retardation Services in the United States.
Braddock, David; Fujiura, Glenn
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n4 p369-87 Jan 1991
An empirical model of community services spending in the states for mental retardation and developmental disabilities was tested using cumulative community services fiscal effort across 1977-88. Strength of consumer advocacy organizations coupled with states' historical orientations toward policies promoting racial equality were highly significant predictors of state-by-state variance in spending patterns.
