Cost-benefit analysis of manpower policies; proceedings of a North American conference by Gerald George Somers( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The North American Conference on Cost-Benefit Analysis of Manpower Policies studied the theory and applicability of cost benefit analysis to manpower programs. In the first part of this document various participants at the Conference discussed the theoretical and methodological aspects of cost benefit analysis for investment appraisal. It was assumed that if the benefits of manpower programs exceed the costs, then the welfare of the investor is increased. Thus where alternatives are available, the appropriate investment is indicated by the highest benefit/cost ratio. However, the units in which the benefits and costs are measured are not always commensurable. Individuals to whom the benefits accrue are not always identical to the group which incurs the cost. Also, benefits and costs are incurred at different points in time and for purposes of comparison the values should be adjusted by a discount rate. The second part of the volume examines the application of cost-benefit analysis to manpower programs. These include occupational training programs for adult workers sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor and programs aimed at reducing poverty by training disadvantaged workers. A list of participants is appended. (Bc)

A cost effectiveness study of the in-school and summer neighborhood youth corps by Gerald George Somers( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This nationwide study to determine the cost-effectiveness of the Neighborhood Youth Corps Program (nyc) is based on participants from projects in operation during fiscal year 1965-66 and 1966-67. Out of the original 1,120 projects 60 were randomly selected, 20 from the three regions--north, south, and west. The sample size of the participants was 780 for the estimation of educational benefits and 676 for economic benefits. An interview survey technique was used to collect data, as well as a mail questionnaire and telephone contacts. Specific conclusions were: (1) The program had no significant effect on the number of high school grades completed, (2) Participants of the program who finished high school were more likely to continue their education after graduation, (3) The participants' earnings were enhanced more by encouragement to participate in the labor force than by increased skills and reduced unemployment, and (4) Negroes gained more from the program than any other ethnic group.
