Abstract
This paper employs comprehensive Chinese data to investigate whether household income growth contributes to alleviate health impairment caused by air pollution. Using an ordered multivariate Logit model, the paper finds that the growth of household income plays an important role in relieving health damage caused by air pollution, and the alleviation is largely dependent on residents’ environmental willingness to pay (WTP). Empirical results also suggest that those with better educational background are more inclined to transform household income into health welfare.
