VOC = volatile organic compounds
NOx = nitrogen oxides
CO = carbon monoxide
PM10 = particulate matter 10 microns or smaller
N/A = not applicable

Sources: Morbidity costs are directly taken from Small and Kazimi (1995). However, mortality costs are calculated specifically for New Jersey by following the same method used in Small and Kazimi (1995). See Ozbay et al. (2000) section 3.4.1 for a detailed explanation.
