Regulation creates costs for businesses, customers, local governments, and other regulated entities. The Mercatus Center’s Regulatory Cost Calculator is a practical tool designed to generate better data on the anticipated costs of individual proposed regulations before they become final regulations. Government regulatory analysts can use the Cost Calculator to elicit better information about the expected costs of regulations. Stakeholders can use the Cost Calculator to provide accurate and credible estimates of the costs of proposed regulations to regulators, legislators and their staffs, the media, and the public policy community.
