Cost Benefit Analysis Example Measure

This note provides the source data for a hypothetical CIVITAS measure typical of those for which you might wish to carry out a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). You can test the tool by using the data on pages 1 and 2. Then, after you obtain a result, you can check the right answer on pages 3, 4 and 5 that will hopefully highlight and explain problems that you experienced – if any – in using the spreadsheet.

This cost benefit analysis tool was developed in 2014 by Tim Larsson, Lund University, for the CIVITAS DYN@MO project.  It is free to use but if you do so please acknowledge the source of the spreadsheet.
