Background on SBCA

The SBCA works to improve the theory and practice of benefit-cost analysis and support evidence-based policy decisions. Our members include scholars and practitioners from around the world, from government, academia, nonprofits and private industry. They represent numerous disciplines such as economics, law, engineering, public policy, decision science and natural science.

We address a wide range of policy areas, including criminal justice, education, energy, environmental quality, homeland security, poverty, public health, transportation and many other topics. We work with a broad set of methods, including benefit-cost analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, risk-benefit analysis, applied welfare economic analysis and damage assessments.

Our primary goals include:

  • Bringing together individuals from diverse disciplines and countries, and providing them opportunities to foster collaboration and exchange information, ideas, and methodologies related to the practice and theory of benefit-cost analysis and applied welfare economics.
  • Encouraging applications of benefit-cost analysis and applied welfare economics, and promoting dialogue between practitioners and others who are interested in benefit-cost analysis.
  • Facilitating the development and dissemination of knowledge about benefit-cost and applied welfare analysis methods and applications.
  • Developing and updating standards of practice for benefit-cost analysis and applied welfare economics.
  • Fostering methods to improve communication and consideration of benefit-cost methods and results.

SBCA was founded in 2007 with a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The Society has more than 330 paid members. In addition to the European conference, the Society holds an annual conference in Washington, D.C. and runs the Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis (Cambridge University Press). The Society is governed by a Board of Directors with the support of many volunteers and a professional management firm, Virtual, Inc.
