Assessing the Distribution of Impacts in Global Benefit‐Cost Analysis. Lisa A. Robinson, James K. Hammitt, October 2017, Paper, "There is widespread agreement that benefit‐cost analyses should be supplemented with information on how the impacts are distributed across individuals with different characterics (such as income) . Yet reviews of completed analyses suggest that such information is rarely provided. The goal of this paper is therefore relatively simple: to encourage analysts to provide information on the distribution of net benefits throughout the population in addition to assessing the overall impacts of the policy."
