In other words, the proposed method tends to obtain a relatively conservative but more reliable uncertainty analysis result. Furthermore, the computational cost of both uncertainty analysis methods is presented in Table It is observed that the conventional method requires a huge number of function evaluations for this 6-dimensional problem.

Exploring Uncertainty in CEA the probability that B is cost effective is For some realizations (two of five), treatment A would have been better.

applicable for other project or policy assessment methods, e.g. cost effectiveness analysis. Brief treatments of risk and uncertainty in CBA are available in many standard text-books on cost benefit analysis, e.g. Campbell & Brown (, ch. 9), Johansson (, ch. 8), Boardman et al. (, ch. 7), Brent (, ch. 11). Several govern-. ADVERTISEMENTS: The following points highlight the four popular techniques for measuring risk and uncertainty in different projects. The techniques are: 1. Risk Adjusted Discount Rate Method 2. The Certainty Equivalent Method 3. Sensitivity Analysis 4. Probability Method. Technique # 1. Risk Adjusted Discount Rate Method: This method calls for adjusting the discount rate to reflect [ ].

There are generally two types of uncertainty in the cost inputs. The chapter discusses the cumulative cost as well as the probability of that cost occurring.

Monte Carlo simulation is a widely accepted simulation method used to produce cost distributions.
