Abstract

Multiple regression analysis is used to address a central research question : what variables predict the location of pollution emissions ? Data are used to assess relationships among socioeconomic class variables, industrial and land-use variables, and pollution emissions. Manufacturing employment, urbanization variables, dwelling value, and household income are all related to pollution emissions. A conceptual model of the development process is formulated to explain the positive relationship between pollution emissions and income levels
