Cost-Benefit Analysis for Decision-Making
Applying the principles and frameworks from economics can help decision makers make great decisions. This short non-technical guide outlines what Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) is, when it can be used and the key components of undertaking the analysis. It also explains how to interpret common CBA results, and some of the pitfalls to be avoided when undertaking a CBA. In addition, this guide briefly outlines alternate useful economic analysis techniques. We hope that this short guide provides decision-makers with an understanding of how CBA works and ultimately how it can help you to inform, influence and make great decisions.
