The Impact of Air Quality Regulation on Industrial Location
AbstractThis paper examines the effect of local air quality regulation on location of polluting industries in the USA. USA counties are designated annually as being in attainment or non-attainment of national air quality standards. Regulations on new and existing plants governing equipment and operating specifications are much tougher in non-attainment counties. A switch from non-attainment to attainment status greatly raises the probability of a county having a particular polluting industry.
