Using this same interpretation of statistical estimation, we can treat choices made by government decision-makers as revealing their preferences. 2) and postulate that government decisions D were based on this criterion, then the following relationship can be specified: D = a2B – a1C. 13) With data on the past decisions made, and measures of B and C, estimation now reveals the values of the distribution weights that were implicit in those past decisions. Alternatively, if we can construct a formula for the weights, B and C would then be the unknowns.

Yet there has been only one reliable randomized experiment of these programmes (carried out in Bangladesh). How would you explain the absence of CBAs of programmes to increase the supply of contraception? 6) from first principles. 10) fit into the discounting process. Assume that the costs C occur in the current period (t = 0) and that there are a stream of benefits of Bt, where t is from years t = 1 to the terminal year t = T. The sum of discounted net benefits (the NPV) would be: NPV = −C + Brent 01 chap01 29 B1 + B2 (1 + i ) (1 + i ) 2 + + BT (1 + i ) T .

The annuity form of discounting is now appropriate, and the current value for benefits would be B/i, where i is the social discount rate. 7) on which it is based, is derived in full in the appendix. 6) and all the disaggregating and weighting should take place from this base. 3 Discounting and cost–benefit analysis First we explain the discounting process and how it leads to a net present value (NPV) figure which is to help determine the fate of the project. Then we show how to convert a capital sum into a stream of annual capital costs.
