IEc combines its economic and risk assessment expertise in developing estimates of the economic
value of policies and programs aimed at improving human health and safety.
Our staff have training and extensive experience in risk assessment techniques
and are knowledgeable about data sources and models essential to risk analysis.
Using these techniques, we model the expected reductions in fatal and nonfatal health
effects, such as fewer cases of chronic bronchitis resulting from improved air quality
or fewer injuries associated with boating accidents.
We estimate the value of avoided adverse health outcomes from the current
literature on willingness to pay, cost of illness, and human capital, considering
the quality of the studies that form the basis of such values.
