Assessment Topic

The purpose of this study is to estimate the cost of a federal guidance proposed by the EPA limiting public exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation from the broadcast industry -- the 9000 AM and FM radio stations and 1000 VHF-TV and UHV-TV broadcast stations in the US -- that EPA research indicates is the most significant source of RF to which the public is exposed. The Lawrence Livermore National Library developed models that estimate a variety of costs at 18 alternative guidance levels for 3 kinds of economic analysis: the cost to society-at-large, the cost to the broadcast industry, and the cost to and effect on net profit of the average broadcast station.
