By , November 5, 2012

Thanks to everyone who attended our latest webinar, “Decisions, Decisions: What Policymakers Need to Know About Cost-Benefit Analysis.” A total of 152 people participated in the live webinar on October 25. You can watch the presentation and view the PowerPoint slides below.

Our thanks to Craig Prins of the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission for presenting the webinar with our staff. We are grateful for the time and energy he contributed to this session.

The webinar was designed to discuss how cost-benefit analysis (CBA) can provide valuable information about the net benefits a policy may generate. The webinar also explained how the judgments and assumptions that go into an analysis may affect a study’s results.
