Spencer, Bruce D.
Evaluation Review, v6 n5 p649-72 Oct 1982

Precedents for evaluating the production, analysis and dissemination of forecasts and projections, data used for determining allocations, and physical monitoring data are discussed. Benefit-cost analysis' greatest potential value may be for social monitoring data. (Author/CM)
