Abstract

The proposed siting of a high-level nuclear waste repository in the State of Nevada has raised difficult problems with respect to assessing future social impacts. The projection of impacts due to a repository has two special problems for the impact assessment process. This paper provides the rationale and describes the findings of one approach used to project anticipated risk-induced effects, specifically the impacts on residents' social well-bing and anticipated behavioral adjustments. The paper shows the findings of a random, representative sample of 755 residents in the Las Vegas area. The findings are based on responses to four alternative plausible 'risk futures.'
