AnnotationCausal models are presented which attempt to assess the relative importance of factors in determining variations in the performance of local authority services. Each model makes assumptions about what factors are the most important causes, about what causes are ultimate and what causal factors are themselves determined by the ultimate causes, and about the form of the causal relationships. Results are presented of the models as they affect welfare services, and domestic help and home nursing services. The book is based on part of some research work financed by the Department of Health and Social Security, and relating to the Seebohm Committee. The models were also reported in "Research evidence of the Committee on Local Authority and Allied Personal Social Services: No 3: Some causes of variation in standards of provision of health and welfare services for old people", funded by a grant from the National Corporation for the Care of Old People (NCCOP).
