Cost-Benefit and Cost-Effectiveness Analyses: A Bibliography of Applications in the Civilian Economy.
Crum, Norman J.
This annotated and preliminary bibliography emphasizes applications of cost-effectiveness (C/E) and cost-benefit (C/B) analyses to problems in the civilian economy. The entries are organized so that the user may identify works in which these techniques are applied to problems in specific areas such as transportation, communication, and health. No attempt has been made to include basic books on the theory of the subject, articles describing limitations of these techniques or methods, or discussions on costing and problems of establishing effectiveness criteria that do not combine these two study elements. C/B and C/E techniques are closely related to planning-programming-budgeting (PPB) and a host of other resource-allocation methods. Entries involving these subjects are included only when they emphasize application of C/B or C/E techniques. With a few exceptions, military-oriented references are excluded. Because of their broad coverage, including studies which may be useful in solving problems in the civilian economy, the most relevant volumes from Defense Documentation Center compilations are cited.
