This chapter uses simple correlational tools, qualitative comparative analysis (QCA), and cluster analysis to test and evaluate the hypothesis that minimum income schemes that show more respect for the right to personal development, once labour conditions are accounted for, will present higher levels of employment effectiveness. This chapter concludes that while the results produced by the correlational tools, QCA, and cluster analysis did not confirm the hypothesis advanced earlier, this does not mean that the hypothesis can be refuted. In fact, the empirical analysis shows that, providing there are more restrictions on the recipients to choose other activities instead of paid employment, it is possible to successfully combine a greater respect for their right to personal development with higher levels of employment effectiveness.
