Abstract The report presents the results of the development and successful pilot implementation of a methodology for assessing the benefits of pollution abatement in a community. The measure of the benefit is based on the concept of the maximum reduction in income people would voluntarily be willing to forego for a given reduction in pollution. The methodology, combining economic model building and social science survey techniques, was tested with a sample of 99 individuals, all residents of Clairton, Pennsylvania.
