|Title:||Explaining Voluntary Sector Behaviour: An Empirical Test Using NSW Non-Profit Social Service Provider Data||Contributor(s):||Maroney, T.

Moreover, a voluminous theoretical literature exists on the voluntary sector in advanced countries. However, relatively little effort has thus far been expended on the empirical assessment of the main models of non-profit organisational behaviour. Using 2003 survey data drawn from selected NSW non-profit social service providers, this paper seeks to replicate Lester Salamon's (1992) seminal American empirical investigation of stylised versions of demand-side theories, supply-side theories, organisational theories, and Salamon's (1987) own model of voluntary sector failure. In common with Salamon's (1992) earlier findings, our results suggest that the theory of voluntary sector failure possesses the greatest explanatory power of the four main models under investigation.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Economic and Social Policy, 9(1), p. 78-97||Publisher:||Southern Cross University||Place of Publication:||Coffs Harbour (NSW), Australia||ISSN:||1325-2224||Field of Research (FOR):||140299 Applied Economics not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://epubs.scu.edu.au/jesp/vol9/iss1/5/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 97
