In this book, targeting refers specifically to the identification of those who will or will not be eligible for a social program. Targeting carries with it the idea that some groups of individuals should be excluded from receiving the program benefit. Policymakers are most often concerned with delivering welfare transfers (either cash or in-kind) to the poor. In contrast, in health programs, it may be the ill or those who are at risk who are targeted.

Measuring the benefits of deadweight losses requires a full analysis of the tax system, which is beyond the scope of this study. Rather, we let the budget savings serve as a minimum estimate of the total savings to the economy. Good targeting also means that most of the poor are reached by the program.
