Environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program - Community Edition (BenMAP-CE)
Environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program - Community Edition (BenMAP-CE) is a computer program that calculates the number and economic value of health impacts that result from changes in air pollution concentrations. The air quality indicators analyzed include ground-level ozone and fine particles. These health impacts are calculated based on modeled or monitored air quality changes; population; baseline incidence rates; and an effect estimate. The economic value of air quality change is evaluated using both "cost of illness" and "willingness to pay" metrics.
