This paper was prepared for participants at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conference, "Protecting the Ozone Layer: Workshop on Demand and Control Technologies," held March 6-7, 1986, in Washington, D.C. It summarizes RAND's reaction to a paper published by Data Resources, Inc. (DRI) that reviews an unpublished RAND draft document, since released as Projected Use, Emissions, and Banks of Potential Ozone-Depleting Substances, RAND/N-2282-EPA, 1986. The authors believe the DRI critique grossly misrepresents RAND's work, and attempt to clarify the situation by responding to the five major points raised by DRI.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
