: One of the many difficult issues the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Children’s Health Protection is addressing is the appropriate treatment of children’s health effects in the economic analyses performed by the Agency. Policy analysis efforts at the Agency often rely on the benefits transfer technique, and very few of the Agency’s benefit transfers have explicitly addressed children’s health issues. To assist the Agency in its efforts, this paper discusses the benefits transfer technique as it applies to estimating values for children’s health.
