An Examination of Benefits and Costs of Achieving Ambient Standards in the South Coast Air Basin

Given the development of benefit estimates for air pollution control in the South Coast Air Basin of Southern California, a benefit-cost analysis of achieving the national ambient air quality standards in the region becomes possible. This study focuses on estimating benefits and costs for achieving the ambient standard on a basin-wide basis in 1979.
