THE IMPACTS OF TRANSPORT: WHAT CAN WE LEARN USING META-ANALYSIS?

Recent years have seen a significant upsurge of studies seeking to place monetary values on the external costs (and sometimes the limited external benefits) of transport. The outcome has been a wide range of estimates. A number of extremely useful surveys have emerged that have brought together much of this work and offered critical assessment of the methods used and of the results generated. These surveys have, however, tended to be of a traditional literary nature and have often produced lists of findings and taxonomies of procedures employed. The aim of this paper is to apply meta-analysis in order to gain greater insights into the causes of the variations in results obtained (e.g. in relation to techniques used, country of study, context of work, etc.).
