I hope to know if there is a better way to measure our programs’ social influence on drug abusers, except using the cost and benefit analysis? As you know, all the costs and benefits are measured in monetary terms, yet there is something that can hardly be measured by monetary terms, such as improvement in family relations when the drug abuser abandons his ill practices.

Thank you for the insightful question. Indeed, the cost and benefit analysis has limitations. Social Return on Investment (SROI) could be a good alternative. It includes social accounting and social auditing to capture financial and non-financial social values of certain programs.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
