It is important that all information collected through
the Program DATCAP is reliable, permitting program administrators and evaluators
to obtain accurate estimates of the opportunity cost of running a program.
The Program DATCAP instrument is a carefully structured set of sequential questions. Clear
instructions from the accompanying User's Manual guide the interviewer as well
as the respondent through the data collection process.
It is therefore essential that the User's Manual is also downloaded and read
alongside the Program DATCAP.
