ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY, EXPENDITURE PATTERNS AND URBAN LOCATION: EFFECTS ON INCOME GROUPS

The incidence of environmental quality is related to urban socio-economic groups in Canada. The study firstly is concerned with the distributional implications of expenditures for goods and services that are "heavy polluters", and secondly with the incidence of urban environmental quality on the residents of Montreal, again in terms of impact on income classes. The econometric investigation is cross-sectional and provides base-line information of immediate importance to the social planner, and permits the assessment of changes in the distributional impacts of pollution for areas where the majority of Canadians now live. /Author/
