LITERATURE REVIEW on EFFECTIVENESS of SOCIAL SECURITY SCHEMES : A META-ANALYSIS APPROACH

Koustubh kanti Ray, Chandrabhanu Das.

Abstract
The present paper conducts a meta-analysis of studies that focus on the social programs
sponsored by public authorities for the welfare of weaker sections of the society. The analysis includes twenty
prominent studies from a pool of studies performed in different countries. The studies are classified on the basis
of scheme category. The meta-analysis results revealed a significant heterogeneity from the study set undertaken
for the purpose. The different set of moderators assigned for analysis covers the various scheme types- financial
inclusion; health insurance; slum welfare; liquefied petroleum gas adoption and sanitation categories. The
meta-analysis results indicate that financial inclusion and slum welfare schemes have a higher significance level
of program effectiveness. This indicates that financial benefit plans and slum welfare initiatives have been
effective as a social security scheme. However, from the forest plot, it is observed that the overall effectiveness
of social schemes all over the world has not been of much impact on the weaker community. The findings of the
study may be helpful for policy makers, public agents, non-profit organizations, and researchers to identify the
essential factors while designing and implementing the social programs for the weaker sections in the society.

Key words: Meta-Analysis, Social programs, Financial inclusion, Health insurance, Slum welfare, Sanitation
