Placing dollar values on human health has long been a controversial aspect of policy analysis and remains difficult given the relatively small number of morbidity-valuation studies available. By combining both the economic and health literature, this paper offers an alternative approach to morbidity valuation and provides estimates for a wide range of short-term health conditions.
