We show that the minimal hypersurface method of Schoen and Yau can be used for the "quantitative" study of positive scalar curvature. More precisely, we show that if a manifold admits a metric g with s(g) greater than or equal to | T| or s(g) greater than or equal to | W|, where s(g) is the scalar curvature of g, T any 2-tensor on M and W the Weyl tensor of g, then any closed orientable stable minimal ( totally geodesic in the second case) hypersurface also admits a metric with the corresponding positivity of scalar curvature. A corollary pertaining to the topology of such hypersurfaces is proved in a special situation.
