By March 2005, when all costs were presumably accounted for, average total costs
of compliance had ballooned to $4.
The average total cost
of hospitalization for the 304 patients was $1,242 per day during the 20 days prior to the start of palliative care and $753 per day during the 20 days after palliative care began--an estimated cost savings of $489 per day for each patient.
This unit cost is actually (in economic terms) average total cost
(ATC) and is not the appropriate decision criteria.
When we estimated only housing-related construction costs, the average total cost
for all units under the HOPE VI program was about 35 percent greater than a two-bedroom tax credit unit and 10 percent greater than a three-bedroom tax credit unit.
Because these methods average total costs
(including, for example, raw materials in determining the turn-rate inherent in the methods), they are generally viewed as resulting in higher taxable income.
Jones and Butler have proposed that a firm competing mainly with the low cost strategy would have lower average total costs
(that are comprised of lower average production costs and lower average transaction costs) vs.
This helps maintain customer service levels while minimizing average total costs
such as ordering, inventory holding and backorder penalty costs.
The researchers then compared these costs between the two groups and found that average total costs
were $447 less in the intervention group.
The cumulative average total costs
after 5 years were estimated to be $12,920 for ablation and $24,280 for cardioversion and drugs.
Extending this premise, a company competing mainly with the low-cost strategy would have lower average total costs
(which are composed of lower average production costs and lower average transaction costs) vs.
