Abstract:

This paper is divided into five major sections. The first section examines the general inability of benefit-cost analysis to provide project and program managers with relevant information upon which to base their decisions. The second section examines three major factors which have precluded large-scale inter-program and project comparison and on which agreement must be reached before an evaluation system can be developed. The third section examines the problems of estimating client income gain and the use of a national labor market survey as a statistical control. Consideration is given in the fourth section to the relationship between sample survey mean, sample survey size, and the prediction of foregone income for a single client as well as an aggregation of clients. The final section suggests an alternative design for national longitudinal survey.
