dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research is three-fold. First, the research will examine the following government growth models: Wagner's Law, intergovernmental grants, fiscal illusion, party control, bureau voting, demonstration effect and electoral competition models. Second, the relationship between the predictor variables of each model and total Texas state government employment will be tested. The relationship between the models' predictor variables and state government employment in the five primary functional categories -- corrections, health and human services, highways, higher education and "other" government agencies -- will also be tested. The other government function includes all other Texas state government agencies that do not fall into the four functional categories previously mentioned. Third, the seven government growth models will be tested against both total government employment and employment in the five governmental functions.
