Abstract Pollution is a direct reflection of the behavioral patterns of the consuming public. In order to achieve long lasting positive reductions of pollutants, basic attitudinal changes must be effected toward what goods and services are demanded, in what quantities, as well as attitudes toward usage and disposal of these items. It is this area in which this report makes initial contributions. Through the use of a mathematical model, both direct and indirect industrial pollution generated by fluxuations of the entire economy are tied to behavioral patterns of the consuming public. The model studies consumer behavior patterns from three viewpoints: income of family, age of head of family, and regional location of family within the United States. The methodology relates 126 final consumption industry groupings to 48 consumer item (product) groupings of the National Conference Board's taxonomy. Findings focus on most polluting industries, and the pollution associated characteristics of sub-groups of the U.S. population.
