The relationship between communicable diseases and disasters merits special attention.

The conceptual models analyze valuation issues from the perspective of parents; treat health risk as endogenously. We examine heterogeneity of willingness to pay (WTP) to reduce risks of fatal disease and trauma to adults and children. Using a stated-preference survey fielded to a large, nationally representative internet panel, we find that WTP to reduce fatal-disease risks (caused by consuming pesticide residues on foods) are similar for several types of cancer and non-cancer Cited by: Valuation of environment-related health risks for children ; Bateman IJ, Lovett AA, Brainard JS ().
