An important aspect of decisions related to the long-range planning of large-scale systems, eg world energy supplies, is their possible environmental side-effects. These decisions, which potentially affect the public's health and safety, increasingly require a formal consideration of mortality risk. Several methods have been proposed for the evaluation of public programmes which probabilistically alter human mortality. This article reviews the relevant literature and the practical applications of these proposed methods. Particular emphasis is placed upon the explicit identification of the social objectives implied by their use.
