The Green Book, Central Government Guidance On Appraisal And Evaluation, Published by HM Treasury in 2018, suggests that: ‘Prosperity is measured by the level of social value as defined in the Green Book, so that an increase in social value is an increase in prosperity and a decrease in social value is a fall in prosperity.’
Where social value: ‘…is the net measure of total welfare resulting from an option or intervention. Alternatively, it is the sum of total benefits and total costs of an intervention, including private and social costs and benefits.’
