Abstract or Summary
  • Since the mid-1950's, when Western Kraft Corporation began operation of a pulp and paper processing plant north of Albany, Oregon, inhabitants of the Albany area have faced an air pollution nuisance. This study is an attempt to add empirical substance to the complaint that air pollution reduces land values. The nature of the study necessitates the development of a new methodology which includes: (1) establishing a study area, (2) pinpointing key variables, (3) determining parcel values, and (4) employment of a statistical comparison. In developing the study it is apparent that the reliability of some of the variables is disputable; however, the evidence as presented suggests that air pollution has no effect on land values.
