题目:Information and avoidance behavior: the effect of air pollution disclosure on labor supply in China (信息公开与行为规避:污染信息披露对中国劳动供给影响)

报告摘要:

Many studies have documented the negative impacts of pollution on labor supply. The effect of pollution information disclosure on labor supply is still under-investigated. In this study, we analyze how labor supply is affected by pollution information disclosure, using the exogenous shock of China’s urban air pollution information disclosure. We examine migrant workers in urban China because they have relatively flexible working time. Using the difference-in-differences method, we found that disclosure of pollution information significantly reduced the working time of outdoor workers. This result is confirmed by a series of robustness tests. In addition, we found heterogeneity among groups.
