Abstract:

Air and noise pollution damages due to transportation activity are capitalized into the value of residential property. Measurement of relationships between pollution levels and property values provides a means of calculating some of the benefits of pollution abatement. Analysis of residential property values indicates the following damage relationships can be measured: (1) Mobile-source air pollution represented by photochemical oxidant concentrations; (2) stationary-source air pollution represented by suspended particulate matter concentrations; (3) highway traffic noise measured by the difference between high and background noise levels; (4) jet aircraft noise measured by the Noise Exposure Forecast; and (5) accessibility in terms of auto travel times. These effects are measured by using ordinary least-squares regression analysis on a cross section of 1970 urban property values for Washington, D. C., SMSA.
