Abstract

A sample of cities from forty-three states is used to analyze how changes in institutions influence municipal expenditures and employment. Per capita costs and municipal employment are not found to be significantly influenced by a shift from restrictive to nonrestrictive annexation laws. Municipalities operating under municipal-determination annexation laws are not found to experience significantly different growth rates in costs and employment per resident from that of cities operating under annexation laws that imposed a greater number of barriers to annexation.
