A Note on Selective Intervention

Abstract

The relative merits of selective versus broad-based intervention programmes are studied analytically. Under some highly idealised assumptions very selective programmes are optimal only rather exceptionally, namely when a sensitive risk score is available for the isolation of high risk individuals and when a selective programme is much more likely to decrease an individual risk score than is a broad-based approach.
