  1. Productivity-cost controversies in cost-effectiveness analysis : Review and research agenda.

    Article - En anglais

    Productivity costs represent true costs to society and should not be ignored in a cost-effectiveness analysis.

    However, there is dissension among health economists regarding measurement of productivity costs.

    Certain health economists argue for inclusion of productivity costs in the denominator of the cost-effectiveness ratio, measured in quality-adjusted life-years.

    Others argue that productivity costs should be included in the numerator of the cost-effectiveness ratio, measured in dollars using the friction-cost method or the human-capital method.

    This paper reviews the productivity-cost controversies and offers suggestions for future research addressing the debated issues.
