Economic Impact Analyses

OAQPS develops Economic Impact Analyses (EIAs) to support the development of national air pollution regulations. EIAs describe and quantify the reallocation of society's resources in response to a regulatory action. The most typical types of regulations for which EIAs are completed include industry or process-specific technology-based rules for one or more of the 189 designaed criteria pollutants (particulate matter, ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and lead).

EIAs generally contain an evaluation of the cost and economic impacts of a specific standard implemented by EPA. Behavioral models are employed to assess how producers and consumers respond to the cost of compliance requirements and a social cost estimate of the regulation is developed. Further details about economic impact analyses completed by AEG can be found in Chapters 5 and 6 of the OAPQS Economic Analysis Resource Document.

Below is a list of industries for which EIAs were developed. The EIAs are generally available in PDF format (unless otherwise noted) and can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
