Estimating Benefits of Reducing Community Low-Level Ozone Exposure: A Feasibility Study, Volume III of Experimental Methods for Assessing Environmental Benefits

The purpose of this feasibility study is to show how to effectively pursue research into measuring the benefits of reduced minor symptomatic discomforts associated with ozone exposure. New benefit estimates are not provided here, although some existing estimates are applied. Instead, attention is directed to showing how an appropriate research methodology can be implement using a sample drawn from the participants in previous studies of chronic obstructive respiratory disease conducted in the Los Angeles area.
