Qu, Jiansheng and Liu, Lina and Zeng, Jingjing and Zhang, Zhiqiang and Wang, Jinping and Pei, Huijuan and Dong, Liping and Liao, Qin and Maraseni, Tek (2019) The impact of income on household CO2 emissions in China based on a large sample survey. Science Bulletin, 64 (6). pp. 351-353. ISSN 2095-9273


This study provides insights into the impact of income on HCEs from different regions of China. Our results indicate that per capita income had a strong positive effect on HCEs before the development needs are saturated. Understanding the trends and magnitude of income impact on HCEs is crucial in developing and refining climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, including local adaptation policy, economic policy and low carbon policy.
