Summary:
This study deals with development, estimation, and application of a constrained welfare maximization model to the counties of the state of Florida. This model was suggested by James M. Henderson and is developed from microeconomic concepts. A survey of the literature concerning public expenditure begins the study. This is proceeded by the derivation of the regression equations which are derived from the concept of constrained welfare maximization. Estimation of the model involves aggregation into metropolitan counties and non-metropolitan counties of Florida county data and the subsequent categorization of counties. Empirical estimation of the desired coefficient enables the exumination of the involved elasticities and the endogenous variable response to changes in the exogenous variables.
