Abstract : Citing specific examples, the report examines, evaluates, analyzes and portrays the sources and nature of the Cost Analysis data base emphasizing important interrelationships between process (gathering, normalization, evaluation), professional skill requirements, the planning of future report revisions, and the development of new data sources. For analysis, the main body of the report employs an expanded 13-step format. Entries on the format were obtained from personal interviews. The report is organized to permit future changes and to facilitate cross-referencing. (Author)
