This course provides an introductory overview of cost-benefit analysis (CBA). The course begins by revisiting the context and foundations of CBA before moving to topics of interest to practitioners, including non-market valuation, discounting, distributional analysis and summary measures. There is particular focus on CBA for Regulatory Impact Assessment.
Attendees will benefit from insights from the literature accompanied by case studies to illustrate key concepts. Drawing on their experience, Catherine and Ken will also provide insights into how CBA plays into decision making in the UK government.
The course costs £195 and will be delivered fully online (via Zoom) with interactive exercises throughout. Codes will be sent upon purchase.
This course is suitable for:
- Economists working on CBA who would benefit from an introductory overview to expand their knowledge in this area to support current or future work. It is not an advanced course but provides an introduction to CBA.
- Economists who may not actively work on CBA but wish to expand their knowledge in this area.
