Avoiding Bias in Estimates of the Effect on Data Error on Allocations of Public Funds.
Spencer, Bruce D.
Evaluation Review, v9 n4 p511-18 Aug 1985
Commonly used techniques for estimating the effect of data error on fund allocations are biased because they fail to account for numerous sources of data error and for misspecification of the allocation formula itself. Alternate methods for estimating the effects of data error are presented. (Author/BS)
