This report was prepared as part of the Ohio River Basin Energy Study (ORBES), a multi-disciplinary program supported by the Environmental Protection Agency. It attempts to establish health damage functions for energy resource extraction, conversion (i.e., burning of coal to produce electricity), and power transmission in the ORBES region, which consists of all of Kentucky, most of West Virginia, and substantial portions of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Also covered in the report are patterns of mortality and health services in the study region and baseline data on health aspects of coal and uranium extraction, of coal-fired and nuclear-fueled electrical generation, of transportation and electrical transmission.
