Effective Strategies in the Collection and Analysis of Cost Data in Rural Programs. Making It Work in Rural Communities. A Rural Network Monograph.
Black, Talbot, Ed.; Hutinger, Patricia, Ed.
The purpose of this monograph is to present broad considerations related to the collection and analysis of cost information on programs for young handicapped children and to illustrate those considerations with examples of systems used in four rural Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP) projects. The two papers in Section I represent two broad and interrelated dimensions of cost analysis. The first paper presents issues, multiple uses, and a framework for classifying systems of cost data collection and analysis. The second paper presents a more specific, yet comprehensive, planning approach to setting up a cost analysis system. Section II consists of papers which describe methods used by four different projects to collect, analyze, and present cost data. Each project description emphasizes personnel costs as well as factors related to time and activities. All reflect the need to capture time with some form of log. (Author/CM)
