The specific objectives of this paper are: to document the different cost-effectiveness techniques; to present a critical analysis of different techniques; and, to identify the best models and sub-models identified in earlier studies. Section I includes a discussion of classifications of cost-effectiveness analysis with emphasis on one particular classification scheme. Section II provides more detailed descriptions of the analysis methods. Sections III and IV provide details on accident costs and countermeasure effectiveness. Section V identifies techniques and sub-models that are the best candidates for futher study and development.
