Distributional impacts of energy and environmental taxation

    Project Details

    Description

    This project is an empirical analysis of the economic consequences of energy and environmental taxation for various population groups in Denmark. Micro data for household expenditure and types of energy are combined with information on income, size of household, occupational status, age etc. to analyse the burden that environmental taxes pose to different income groups etc. The general conclusion is that energy taxes are regressive with the exception of taxes on petrol.
