Economic valuation of transport related health effects Review of methods and development of practical approaches, with a special focus on children
The main objective of this project was to develop practical approaches to the economic valuation of transport-related health effects, including a focus on children.

The main objective of this project was to develop practical approaches to the economic valuation of transport-related health effects, including a focus on children. The development of the approaches was based on two reviews of relevant literature: one of recent epidemiological literature to identify the health endpoints related to road transport for which sufficient evidence exists for including them in economic valuation and another of literature on economic approaches to valuation of health costs due to road transport to derive guidance on the best way forward. A practical approach for road noise, transport-related air pollution and road crashes is presented; key issues regarding insufficient physical activity related to hindering effects of transport on commuter cycling and walking are discussed. The report also presents example calculations for the selected health endpoints which are based on the developed practical approaches for noise, air pollution and road crashes.
