Published and unpublished estimates of the cost of air pollution damage are reviewed and national total estimates are given. In addition, cost estimates are developed for air pollution effects on human health, vegetation, materials, and residential property values. Estimates of the cost of air pollution damage to animals and to aesthetic aspects of the environment are not derived. The cost for each effect is distributed among the several pollutants considered responsible for that effect according to their relative emissions. The same cost is distributed among the sources by their relative emissions. No cost function relations could be developed for various levels of pollution. As a consequence, the pivotal functions of marginal benefit are precluded. (Modified author abstract)
