Abstract

Household budget survey data and public budget consolideted data for 1987/88 are combined to yoeld a non-estimation based measure of benefit of government education outlays in Greece. As expected for a country where education services are provided free of charge and the role of private education is limited transfers in the fields of primary and secondary education contribute strongly to a decline in quality.
