Abstract

Balancing environmental quality with economic growth in less developed settings is clearly a challenge. Still, surprisingly little empirical evidence has been brought to bear on the "relative" priority given environmental and socioeconomic issues among the residents themselves of such settings. This research explores such perceptions. Copyright (c) 2009 by the Southwestern Social Science Association.
