Cost Curve

A graph of cost (average, marginal or total) against output rate. Cost-effectiveness Acceptability Curve

A cost-effectiveness acceptability curve (CEAC) is a graphical way of showing more information about uncertainty in a cost-effectiveness analysis than can be done by using only confidence intervals. For each of a variety of possible incremental cost-effectiveness ceiling ratios or thresholds, the curve shows the proportion of estimates of the incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) that are lower. It thus provides a visual image to aid judgments as to whether a technology actually is cost-effective.
