The Quality of Life in England and Wales
Local amenities play an important role in determining where we choose to live and our overall quality of life (QOL). In many cases, however, amenities do not have prices and will therefore be underprovided by the market. In this paper, we use individual and county level data for England and Wales to estimate implicit amenity prices and to calculate an index of QOL for each county. Among our findings is a large negative price on air pollution. The range in QOL across counties is estimated to be in excess of 2,000 pounds per year. Copyright 2004 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
