Abstract

This study analyses the determinants of health status and the willingness to pay for a reduction in air and noise pollution in Turkey over the period 2006-2012. The analysis relies on a pseudo-panel data using age and region cohorts. Furthermore, we follow the instrumental variables (IV) approach and we apply the two and three stage least squares methods using wind direction and regional complaint rates on pollution as instruments. Based on our favoured estimates, individuals who report problems with air and noise pollution are willing to pay for an improvement in air and noise quality more by 20.00-25.00 Turkish Liras (TL) per month.
