Risque industriel, prix des logements et ségrégation résidentielle


  • Marianne Bléhaut


Industrial risk is very widespread in France. However, the location of dangerous plants is far from random. The way households take industrial risk into account in their residential choices is thus difficult to analyze. This article relies on a public policy evaluation method to estimate the relationship between industrial risk perception and housing market characteristics. In particular, it uses the accident of the chemical plant AZF in Toulouse in 2001 as an exogenous shock on risk perception. Results show that on the short term, housing prices tend to decrease following this shock. In addition, in at-risk residential areas, the vacancy rate increases and household income decreases.
