Valuation of Urban Air Pollution: A Case Study of Kanpur City in India
This study estimates the monetary benefits to individuals from health damages avoided as a result on reductions in air pollution in the urban industrial city of Kanpur in India. A notable feature of this study is that it uses data from weekly health-diaries collected for three seasons. For measuring monetary benefits, the study considers two major components of health cost â€” the loss in wages due to workdays lost and the expenditure incurred on mitigating activities.
