Abstract:

This paper summarizes, from an economics point of view, what has been considered and accomplished for cost-effectiveness analyses of individual skill training in the military. Some conceptual and data deficiencies are highlighted, and suggestions are offered for improving techniques for evaluating training programs. While these suggestions include approaches to measuring effectiveness, the emphasis is on production and process function approaches for achieving more useful cost estimates.
