Abstract

[eng] Dynamics of Household Drinking- Water Consumption: Study of a Sample Group of French . Communes . by Cécile Nauges and Alban Thomas . The early 1990s was a turning point for household consumption of water. In addition to a surge in price, a decline in domestic consumption was recorded for the first time. This paper demonstrates that users were not unresponsive to the increase in the price of water, since long-term elasticity is calculated to be -0.6 over the 1988-1993 period. Moreover, estimation from a dynamic model with non-stationary individual effects reveals the influence of specific phenomena in 1990 and 1991. The droughts during this period and the discussion on the entry into force of new regulations unquestionably raised the awareness of consumers, who altered their consumption behaviour. [fre] Le début des années quatre-vingt-dix a constitué un tournant pour la consommation d'eau des ménages. Outre la forte hausse du prix, on a constaté pour la première fois un recul de la consommation domestique. Cet article montre que les usagers n'ont pas été insensibles à l'augmentation du prix de l'eau puisque l'on estime l'élasticité de long terme à -0,6 sur la période 1988-1993. En outre, l'estimation d'un modèle dynamique à effets individuels non stationnaires met en évidence l'influence de phénomènes particuliers dans les années 1990 et 199 1 . Les sécheresses survenues pendant cette période, les débats autour de l'entrée en vigueur d'une nouvelle réglementation ont très certainement sensibilisé les usagers qui ont modifié leurs comportements de consommation.
