A Cost-Benefit Analysis of Accessibility.
Chollet, Deborah J.
The report presents a cost-benefit analysis on the removal of architectural barriers from residential and nonresidential buildings according to specifications being developed for approval by the American National Standards Institute. Economic benefits and costs are discussed for the following types of buildings: residential housing (highrise facility for the elderly and a single family, detached unit); educational and associated facilities (a college classroom building and a college dormitory); recreational/municipal facilities (a convention/exhibition center); and an extended commercial facility (a retail shopping center). An introductory section contains a summary of information on handicapped individuals in the United States and their general characteristics. (CL)
