ESCAP works to improve the use of statistics for evidence-based decision-making and to develop and disseminate quality statistics for inclusive, sustainable and resilient societies in the ESCAP region.

Quality statistics, that is statistics that are relevant, accurate, timely, value for money, accessible to all and free from political interference are the foundation for good governance.

They provide our leaders with the evidence they need to make important decisions that affect every aspect of our lives. Questions like: “should interest rates be raised?”, “do we need more doctors?”, “is our environment being damaged?”, “does our society treat everyone fairly?” And they provide individuals with the information they need to contribute to these debates and understand how effective policy decisions have been.

EPA develops and applies methodologies for estimating the costs of air pollution regulations. Products include cost methodology manuals, spreadsheets for estimating costs, control strategy software, databases of emission control measures, and other useful information related to air pollution control costs. Provided below are the cost-related models and tools maintained by EPA.

The EPA Air Pollution Control Cost Manual provides guidance for the development of accurate and consistent costs for air pollution control devices. The Control Cost Manual focuses on point source and stationary area source air pollution controls for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and some acid gases (primarily SO2 and HCl). More information on the Control Cost Manual is available at Cost Reports and Guidance .
