Benefits Analyses

OAQPS develops benefits analyses to quantify the value of improving human health and reducing environmental impacts of air pollution regulations. Benefits analyses include both quantitative and qualitative estimates of reducing exposure of humands and the environment to ambient concentrations of air pollution. Further details about benefits analyses completed by OAQPS can be found in Chapter 7 of the OAQPS Economic Analysis Resource Document.

Below is a listing of benefits analyses that have been completed by ABCG. To download a report, click on the appropriate link.
