Hello :)
I have a question regarding the VSL (value of a statistical life). It amounts in the European Union 1 mln euro.
I would be very grateful if someone would explain it to me, why it has been estimated on this particular level (provided with some official documents).

Dear Rafello007rafaello,

A good source of information is the chapter 23 ‘Understanding and accounting for the costs of inaction’ (http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/part-d-costs-justice-and-innovation) of the report Late lessons from early warnings: Science, precaution, innovation (http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/late-lessons-2).

You may also be interested in the annex 1 of the EEA Technical report 1/2013 Road user charges for heavy goods vehicle (http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/road-user-charges-for-vehicles. This report provides also useful references.
