8.0 Intro

Several methodological issues are fundamental to any EA. Addressing these issues is necessary to ensure that the benefits and costs of a regulatory option can be directly compared with each other and with the benefits and costs of other regulatory options. This section focuses on four general methodological issues:
  • specifying the time period of analysis,
  • specifying a baseline for analysis,
  • discounting benefits and costs, and
  • addressing uncertainty.
