The economic costs of nutrition services for a low-income prenatal population: II. Indirect and intangible costs

The economic costs of nutrition services for a low-income prenatal population: II. Indirect and intangible costs

Journal of Pediatric & Perinatal Nutrition 2(1): 17-26

In a pilot study information was collected one day a week for 24 weeks from low-income pregnant women in Alameda County, California, USA, to explore a method of determining the value of the indirect costs for a low-income prenatal population to receive nutrition services. Intangible costs were also considered although they were not measured or valued. Indirect and intangible costs are often overlooked components of cost-benefit analyses. If nutritionists plan to use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate their services, the inclusion of indirect and intangible costs will strengthen their studies. The average indirect cost was $21.37.
