References and notes

(1) All costs included: administrative, operating, research, foundraising costs...

(2) For that number, we use a cost of $3.60/net/person/year from Givewell 2016 online data

(3) A Quality-Adjusted Life Year (QALY) is a year in perfect health.

(4) For calculations, the Givewell's model of 2016 restricts first to children saved <5 (a majority of nets distributed), whose average life expectency in perfect health (QALE) is 30 in the poorest countries (where nets are given). Then, the 2017 model takes partially into accounts the adults protected.

(5) It was shown that doubling a yearly income increases subjective well-being (reported on a 0-100% scale) by 5% (Stevenson & Wolfers, 2013).

(6) We used the average carbon footprint of a European citizen for a year (13.8 co2equ according to Tukker et al., 2016).

(7) A Well-Being Adjusted Life Year is the well-being equivalent of a QALY(3): a year with 100% happiness. Happiness is measured by a subjective report (on a 0-100% scale). We neglect health-related increase of happiness by a lack of a reliable model.

(8) We take into consideration both the carbon footprint generated from the additionnal time alive (with 0.36 tons of CO2equ/year according to Asane-Otoo, 2015) and the increased carbon footprint from increased consumption.

(9) For that number, we use a cost of $0.53/person/year from Givewell 2016 online data

(10) Givewell's model of 2016

(11)after 10 years: +20% income / +3.4h of work/week (10)

(12)+25% attendance = 2 more weeks of school (10)

(13) Data from the Gold Standard Full Monitoring Report 2013 for that project

(14)This figure takes into account an adjustment for a 73% drop-off of usage (Eathwood verification report), for the fact that some users are owners of a second cookstove that they use in parallel (13), for a potential 7% rebound effect (Druckman, 2011) and for a 2% yearly discount rate for long-term uncertainty.

(15) Available yearly household income is increased from 9% (Validation report ThuvRheinland) to 15% (Full Monitoring Report 2013) for 7 years.

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a
blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
