Abstract:

Modern governments operate through laws and regulations. However, difficulties in measuring their contents prevent researchers from understanding and evaluating their effectiveness. For example, it is not clear whether balanced budget laws have helped Canadian provincial governments control their budget deficits because the content of these laws is seldom examined in sufficient detail. This case study introduces a method that evaluates the stringency of balanced budget laws by generating a numerical index, so that these laws can be compared across jurisdictions and over time, and can be evaluated against their outcomes. This study also describes our process of developing a research design that draws from interdisciplinary knowledge and integrates multiple methods to answer one research question: Are balanced budget laws effective when economic conditions deteriorate? Our research design and methods can be applied to a wide range of social science research.
