AbstractThis papers uses new micro data on vehicle pollution and merges on Census information owner income to study the relationship between air pollution and individual income. It is important to quantify how this externality varies with individual income when considering the equity and efficiency of stringent vehicle emissions testing or vehicle scrappage programs.
