How to add WTP valuation in BenMAP?


#1

Also, how does BenMAP compute WTP for economic benefit?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello Angela,

BenMAP-CE calculates the economic value of air pollution effects by using both Cost of Illness (COI) and Willingness to Pay (WTP) unit values. The program multiplies the number of air pollution cases by the COI or WTP value to estimate the total value of air pollution effects.

If you are interested in adding new WTP or COI functions to BenMAP-CE, let me know and I can post a sample input file.
