Air pollution and human health by Lester B Lave( Book )

24 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Upon competition of a ten year research project which analyzes the effect of air pollution and death rates in US cities, Lester B. Lave and Eugene P. Seskin conclude that the mortality rate in the US could shrink by seven percent with a similar if not greater decline in disease incidence if industries followed EPA regulations in cutting back on certain pollutant emissions. The authors claim that this reduction is sufficient to add one year to average life expectancy. Originally published in 1977

This is another short work in the popular research area of technological change. It will be of interest to agricultural economists because three of the chapters deal explicitly with agriculture and much of the detailed concern with measurement problems utilizes agricultural data

Environmental life cycle assessment of goods and services : an input-output approach by Chris T Hendrickson( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental life cycle assessment is often thought of as cradle to grave and therefore as the most complete accounting of the environmental costs and benefits of a product or service. However, as anyone who has done an environmental life cycle assessment knows, existing tools have many problems: data is difficult to assemble and life cycle studies take months of effort. A truly comprehensive analysis is prohibitive, so analysts are often forced to simply ignore many facets of life cycle impacts. But the focus on one aspect of a product or service can result in misleading indications if that

A statistical-engineering approach to estimating railway cost functions by Joseph S DeSalvo( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Statistical and engineering methods both possess advantages and disadvantages in the determination of cost behavior. This paper illustrates a wedding of the two approaches for the case of rail costs. The statistical approach of Meyer, Peck, Stenason, and Zwick is used for all cost components except linehaul and equipment depreciation. An engineering process function is used along with input costs to develop linehaul costs. Depreciation costs for cars and locomotives are estimated from equipment prices and estimated lifetimes. The resulting statistical-engineering cost function permits a detailed estimation of the cost of a train trip. It is much more flexible than the pure statistical approach as it permits changes in equipment, roadway, and loading conditions. In addition, it includes costs not amenable to engineering analysis, such as selling and administration. (Author)
How safe is safe enough? : setting safety goals by Lester B Lave( Book )

Uncertainty in risk assessment, risk management, and decision making by Vincent T Covello( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The subject of this volume--uncertainties in risk assessment and management--reflects an important theme in health, safety, and environ℗Ư mental decision making. MOst technological hazards are characterized by substantial uncertainty. Recent examples include nuclear waste disposal, acid rain, asbestos in schools, carcinogens in food, and hazardous waste. realing with such uncertainty is arguably the most difficult and challeng℗Ư ing task facing risk assessors and managers today. Four primary sources of uncertainty in risk assessment and management can be identified: (1) uncertainties about definitions; (2) uncertainties about scientific facts; (3) uncertainties about risk perceptions and atti℗Ư tudes; and (4) uncertainties about values. Uncertainties about definitions derive primarily from disagreements about the meaning and interpretation of key concepts, such as probability. Uncertainties about scientific facts derive primarily from disagreements about failure modes, the probability and magnitude of adverse health or environmental consequences, cause and effect relationships, dose-response relationships, and exposure patterns. Uncertainties about risk perceptions and attitudes derive primarily from disagreements about what constitutes a significant or acceptable level of risk. Uncertainties about values derive primarily from disagreements about the desirability or worth of alternative risk management actions or conse℗Ư quences. The papers in this volume address each of these sources of uncertainty from a variety of perspectives. Reflecting the broad scope of risk assess℗Ư ment and risk management research, the papers include contributions from safety engineers, epidemiologists, toxicologists, chemists, biostatisticians, biologists, decision analysts, economists, psychologists, political scien℗Ư tists, sociologists, ethicists, and lawyers
