A range of values has been taken for key parameters and the results reported not only for the central estimate but for the range of values. This does not provide a statistically valid estimate of the range of values for the external costs, with a given confidence interval, or resolve the uncertainty issue, but it will be a useful indication of where the uncertainties lie. A separate but equally important aspect of the uncertainty dimension in the 3 In this report only the last two stages are analysed: estimation of the physical impacts of the dispersed pollutants, and valuation of these impacts.

This may be an issue of perceived versus objective probabilities, but can only be a partial explanation. At this stage, there is no alternative to using this value. However, as part of the ongoing research the issue of voluntary risk needs to be addressed and a revised estimate of the value of life obtained. 3. 1 mn. is based on studies in which the individuals involved came from relatively narrow age bands (around 25-55 years, with a concentration in the 35-45 age band). One would expect the VOSL to vary with age, with a possibly lower value for older people, but this does not appear to be supported by the little evidence that is available.

Certainly, there have been serious difficulties in conveying the impact of different probability changes through questionnaire methods. Finally, the consumer expenditure approach is subject to the difficulties that perceived probabilities are very different from objective probabilities, and that the effects of the expenditures are to reduce the risk of death as well as of 2 This is probably one reason that the etimated value of life declines as the mean risk level in a group increases. From a theoretical perspective one would expect the opposite if the populations were homogeneous.
