Appendix: Quantitative Indicators Relating to the Welfare State in Small States

To develop and document the issues raised in this thematic paper, several levels of quantitative indicators can usefully be assembled. In the first instance, the aim would be to get a high-quality set of cross-country data for a single year, preferably 2000. The prospects for assembling consistent time series are less clear, but wherever possible it is desirable to obtain point estimates for earlier years to provide indicative changes over time.
