Annotation:
The author describes how past attempts to uncover evidence that economically disadvantaged groups are unjustly exposed to environmental disamenities have failed to lake into account self-selection behavior of individuals or groups of individuals. For instance, when choosing a place to live, households may be trading environmental quality for other housing, neighborhood, and location characteristics they care about. Previous literature on environmental justice has investigated location choice of polluting industries but fails to account for consumer self-selection in housing markets. This paper thus focuses on location choice of individuals based an observed housing transactions.
