Citation Information: The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy. Volume 9, Issue 2, ISSN (Online) 1935-1682, DOI: 10.2202/1935-1682.2030, March 2009

Publication History

Published Online:


This paper uses zip code level data to investigate the spatial distribution of two major "green" products. Using data from California, we document where hybrid vehicles cluster within the state. Using data for the entire nation, we study where LEED registered buildings cluster. By creating a novel measure of community environmentalism based on revealed preference political data, we document that green products cluster in environmentalist communities.

Keywords: hybrid vehicles; LEED buildings; environmentalism; GIS
