The essays in this volume explore methods of evaluating the efficiency of public programs through a consideration of one program, Vocational Rehabilitation. They focus in particular on benefit-cost analysis, and investigate its uses and limitations as an instrument for assessing the performance of the Vocational Rehabilitation program. Since other manpower and human service programs share characteristics with Vocational Rehabilitation, this study will have broad relevance to administrators, policymakers, and individuals served by these programs.
