How do ozone levels influence the timing of residential moves?
Although there is evidence that people are aware of local ozone levels and may adjust their day-to-day routines when ozone levels change, little is known about the relationship between local ozone levels and the timing of residential moves. Results from a discrete-time hazard model suggest that homeowners living in areas with moderate to poor air quality are more likely to move when ozone levels are substantially different (better or worse) from the levels at the time of purchase.
