Assisting people into work has a wide range of benefits and knock-on effects for the economy and society as a whole. Recognising these effects is key for appraisals and evaluations of employment programmes.

This report presents a framework incorporating the economic and social impacts of work into cost-benefit analysis of employment programmes.

The report takes forward the recommendations on developing the cost-benefit analysis framework set out in the Department for Work and Pensions Working Paper No. 40.
