A J Mumphrey Jr

Received 21 November 1974

Abstract. A rule is presented to facilitate efficient compensation decisions for group losses resulting from the implementation of public facilities. Two concepts, administrative cost and demoralization cost, are incorporated in the rule. These costs are defined and a procedure for the measurement of demoralization cost is discussed. This procedure utilizes nonmetric similarities and preference data, along with multidimensional scaling. Finally, problems and shortcomings in the procedures are presented.
