Using survey data from a random sample of residents, the efficacy of a comprehensive mosquito abatement program in Stuttgart, Arkansas, was evaluated. The findings indicate very high levels of satisfaction with abatement efforts among the residents. Additionally, estimates of benefit/cost ratios indicate benefits far outweigh costs. Regression analysis indicates that income and education are positively associated with level of support although there is a negative age effect.
