Title: <NOTE>A Note On The Policy For Health & Community Acceptance Of A LULU : Locally Undesirable Land Use
Authors: Watanabe, Shigeru

Abstract: In this note the model of P. A. Groothuis, G. V. Houtven and J.C. Whitehead (1998) which analyzed the siting of LULU has been generalized. In the model it is assumed that the level of income does not depend on the health status, and medical expenditure in the case of poor health is implicitly neglected in the model. It is also assumed in the model that the siting of the hazardous waste facility effects only on the perceived probability of the poor health. However, it is plausible to suppose that not only the probability of the poor health but also the degree of required medical expenditure in the case of poor health will be affected by the siting of the hazardous waste facility. In this note labor income which depends on the health status is taken into account. Medical expenditure in the case of poor health is also taken into consideration in generalized model of this note. In addition, the effect of siting the hazardous waste facility on the degree of required medical expenditure is also considered.
