An Empirical Analysis on Particulate Matter Risk Perception in Korea




The purpose of this study is to measure public perception of particulate matter. For accomplishing the research goal, we conducted survey and use various kinds of variables, such as severity, effect on health, disease, health problems, influencing factors, policies, and so on. The results of the survey can be summarized as follows. First, the severity of particulate matter was recognized as a serious problem and particulate matter had an adverse effect on their health. Second, with regard to the health problems caused by particulate matter, respiratory diseases accounted for 54.1%, and 42.0% of eye diseases and skin diseases was 30.7%. Third, the introduction of the total pollutant emission system was required to be equipped, especially for industrial complexes. Fourth, a mandatory introduction of a chimney automatic measuring device was required. Fifth, if public transportation is convenient and infrastructure is expanded, people are willing to use public transportation to reduce the occurrence of particulate matter. Sixth, people are willing to participate in a double-shift vehicle system to reduce the occurrence of particulate matter. Eighth, polluters should pay for a budget to implement a particulate matter management system.
