This volume is one of a series under the title Methods Development for Environmental Control Benefits Assessment prepared mainly under cooperative agreement R805059 with the University of Wyoming, although several of the individual volumes were completed under later cooperative agreements or under subagreements with other institutions. Each of the other volumes in the series is listed on the front and back inside covers of this volume. The overall purpose of the series is to report significant research results achieved under the cooperative agreement. The purpose of the agreement was to develop improved methods for assessing environmental benefits, with emphasis on air pollution benefits. An earlier series of interim reports prepared under the same cooperative agreement was published by EPA in 1979 under the series title of Methods Development for Assessing Air Pollution Control Benefits.

This volume is a nontechnical summary of most of the economic benefits research funded by EPA at the Universities of Wyoming and New Mexico and at Resources for the Future over the period 1976-83. As such, it represents an overview of much of the research funded under the EPA Office of Research and Development's Economic Research Program during this period, as well as of a few studies funded by the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards. Although originally prepared under cooperative agreement R805059, this summary was extended under R810466 with Resources for the Future. A number of the research studies summarized in this volume (and listed in the Bibliography) are part of this same series.
