The risks of nuclear disaster and its impact on housing prices

Ando, M., M. Dahlberg, and G. Engström (2017). Economics Letter 154:13–16.

Abstract:

Using a data set on housing sales transactions we explore the potential effect of the Fukushima disaster on housing prices in Sweden. In contrast to most earlier findings in other countries we do not find any disproportionate effect from the Fukushima disaster on housing prices in vicinity of nuclear power plants in Sweden.
