The purpose of the Environmental Policy and Economics Workshop Series is to hold in-depth workshops on timely topics that will further the use of economics as a tool for environmental decision making. Both NSF/EPA grant recipients and researchers (from EPA, fellow Federal agencies, academia, and others) will be invited to attend and discuss their on-going research. Topics will be chosen based on relevance to current EPA issues and, more broadly, to issues of concern to the environmental economics community. These topics include exploration of innovations in economic research methods as well as how research will further environmental policy making and future environmental economic studies.
This report represents the proceedings of the second workshop of this series. This two-day workshop was dedicated to exploring methods for valuing morbidity and mortality risks, with the second day specially focused on the unique considerations specific to children's health valuation. The four sessions-"Valuing Mortality Risk," "Valuing Morbidity Risk," "How Do We Value Children?," and "Household Production Models and Children's Health Valuation" present current environmental economics research and policy discussions concerning each topic.
