Regional demand for water in Greece using panel data

Επαμεινώνδας Ε. Πανάς


Regional water demand is estimated as a function of water price, household size, income,
and temperature using cross-section and time-series data from 29 regions in Greece, between
1995-1998. The data are panel data and the Hausman test indicates that the fixed effects model
cannot be rejected in favour of the random effects model and so the former becomes the
analytical model of choice. Estimated demand was found to be highly responsive to changes in
water price, income and the level of the climatic variable.
