Notes
  • Air quality in the South Coast Air Basin of southern California has improved significantly over the past decade, although pollution levels continue to exceed health-based standards on a significant number of days. This study estimates the decline in ozone-related school absences in southern California over the 1990s, reported as differences in the number of days of respiratory illness-related absences, the number of days of all illness-related absences, and the economic loss to families of those absences. The study reports differences in the number of these effects for the intervals 1990-92 to 1997-99, for rolling three-year intervals to 1997-99 across that period, and for expected future reductions in ozone. The baseline population is the cohort aged 5-18 residing in the South Coast Air Basin in 1998. For the interval 1990-92 to 1997-99, the economic value of fewer school absences ranges from $156 million annually to more than $330 million annually, with a best estimate of $245 million. This represents a benefit of nearly $75, on average, for every school-age child in the region. (JEL "I10", "I12", "Q2", "Q25") Copyright 2003 Western Economic Association International.
