BenMAP-CE user manual
This is a manual to the Environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program—Community Edition (BenMAP-CE); a program that helps estimate the number and economic value of health impacts resulting from changes in air pollution concentrations.
Most users apply the BenMAP-CE tool to answer one of two types of questions:
1. What are the human health and economic benefits associated with a policy improving air quality?
2. What is the human health burden attributable to total air pollution levels?
While the BenMAP-CE development team designed the program to be accessible to novice users, the tool includes a number of features that will appeal to advanced analysts as well. For example, analysts can add their own health impact and valuation functions, map results, and perform a suite of sensitivity analyses. Beginning users can take advantage of U.S. EPA’s pre-programmed settings and reports in the core program.
