Hammitt and Robinson Work on Benefit-Cost Analysis Guidelines

Professor James Hammitt and Senior Research Scientist Lisa Robinson are on the leadership team of a new project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to develop guidelines to encourage the conduct of high quality benefit‐cost analyses. Other members of the leadership team include Dean Jamison, Professor Emeritus of Global Health at the University of California, San Francisco and David de Ferranti, Founder and Chair of the Board for Results for Development Institute (R4D). These guidelines will provide a reference case that promotes comparability across analyses, and will include principles, methodological specifications, and reporting standards. The guidelines will build on an existing reference case, which discusses the general framework for economic evaluation and the conduct of cost-effectiveness analyses.
