The core aim of the Benefit-Cost Analysis Center is to improve the understanding and use of benefit-cost analysis (BCA) as a decision-making tool. Our research and outreach is geared toward:
•Improving and standardizing benefit-cost analysis methodology.
•Strengthening relationships between institutions that use it.
•Disseminating information about its use and misuse.
•Expanding its use when appropriate.
The Benefit-Cost Analysis Center works with a variety of
government agencies and academic professionals who use BCA in their work, including the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis (http://www.benefitcostanalysis.org).
