Abstract

Une part importante de la population française déclare lors d’enquêtes d’opinion ne pas boire l’eau du robinet, bien que la qualité de l’eau distribuée par ce canal fasse l’objet de contrôles sanitaires rigoureux et que le prix de l’eau en bouteille soit environ cent fois plus élevé que le prix de l’eau du robinet. On cherche alors à identifier les facteurs qui incitent les ménages à choisir l’eau du robinet comme eau de boisson. Sur un échantillon de ménages répartis sur la France entière, on montre que, outre les caractéristiques sociodémographiques (niveau de revenu, niveau d’éducation, type d’habitat), la qualité de l’environnement immédiat du ménage, mesurée ici par la qualité des eaux brutes, influence également sa décision de boire l’eau du robinet.
