Estimating the Economic Benefits of Arsenic Removal in India: A Case Study from West Bengal
People living in almost fifty percent of the districts in West Bengal are exposed to arsenic contaminated water. The economic costs imposed by arsenic-related health problems are estimated. Data from a primary survey of 473 households carried out in the districts of North 24 Parganas and Midnapore are used. Household actions to either decrease the exposure of family members to unsafe water or to alleviate the health effects of consuming arsenic-contaminated water are taken into account.
