Public Health Planning and Evaluation W5A1

Cost Comparison Analysis

Economic issues are always to be considered during the process of program planning and evaluation. Economic evaluations are analyses that center on the cost of a program and the relationship of the cost to the outcome or impact of the program.

A cost comparison analysis compares the costs of at least two programs. CEA, CBA, and CUA are examples of cost comparison analyses.

 

Use the South University Online Library or the Internet to research on cost comparison analysis. Create a report in a 4- to 5-page Microsoft Word document that includes the following:

 

  • An analysis and explanation of the pros and cons of a CEA. Describe how health program planners would use a CEA to assist them in making decisions about their programs.
  • An analysis and explanation of the pros and cons of a CBA. Describe how health program planners would use a CBA to assist them in making decisions about their programs.
  • An analysis and explanation of the pros and cons of a CUA. Describe how health program planners would use a CUA to assist them in making decisions about their programs.
  • Select two public health programs that you would like to compare by means of an economic evaluation. Analyze, identify, and describe the type of economic analysis that you would use in the evaluation.
  • Support your answers with appropriate research, reasoning, and examples.

    Cite any sources in APA format.
