Abstract

The paper contains analysis of disparities in environmental impact among Russia's regions and its relation to the production growth over the years 2000-2007. Standard measures of inequality (Lorenz Curve, Gini coefficient, Atkinson index, Theil index) are applied to per capita environmental and economic characteristics, such as air pollution, sewage volume, wastes volume, gross regional product. Space autocorrelation of these indicators by region is also evaluated.
