Presents an analysis of the magnitude of hazardous waste risks and the cost-effectiveness of EPA's Superfund program. By matching EPA data to detailed census information using geographic information systems (GIS) technology, the authors compare the risks posed by hazardous waste sites with the costs of cleanup options.
