Developing an empirical Environmental Kuznets Curve
This study aims to develop a model of Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC)Â that relates between environmental pollution level and the prosperity level inÂ Tangerang City. The method uses two models of pooled data regression techniqueÂ namely, Random Effect Model (REM), and Fixed Effects Model (FEM)Â both quadratic and cubic. The period of observation is 2002-2012. The resultsÂ suggest that relationship between per capita income and the level of environmentÂ quality, reflected as the BOD concentration (Oxygen Biological damage)Â and COD (Chemical Oxygen Damage) can be explained by the quadratic FEMÂ model and follow the EKC hypothesis even though the turning point is notÂ identified.
