Cost Benefit Data -- See Cost-Benefit Analysis A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency).

Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
Cost Containment -- See Cost Control The containment, regulation, or restraint of costs. Costs are said to be contained when the value of resources committed to an activity is not considered excessive. This determination is frequently subjective and dependent upon the specific geographic area of the activity being measured. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
