HOUSEHOLD'S LOCATION IN AN URBAN AREA: AN EXTENSION OF THE TRADITIONAL MODEL

The study contains an explicit introduction of the environmental quality into the household's utility function thereby affecting its decision on the optimal location. The resulting relations indicate that the environmental quality which is postulated to be characterized by better quality the farther the location from the CBD induces farther shifts from the CBD as income increase. An empirical investigation is carried out to show the positive interaction between increase in income and air quality level on population density. /Author/
