Regulations have a substantial impact on public health in the United States and elsewhere, affecting our exposure to environmental, transportation, food, tobacco, terrorism, and other risks. They are also an area where the use of decision analytic tools (especially benefit-cost analysis) has been required for many years. CHDS Senior Research Scientist Lisa A.

Her essay is part of a series entitled New Developments in Regulatory Benefit-Cost Analysis.
