 要:As its height in the 1950s in LA, air pollution has become one of the highly noticeable phenomena and major sociological concerns in modern Chinese cities. This paper specifically examines the impact of the ongoing “new-type urbanization” process on urban air quality in China. By adopting a modified STIRPAT model with spatial dimension and employing data from 284 prefecture-level cities from 2003 to 2012, we show that the "new-type urbanization" generates negative local environmental impacts while also affects proximate cities through spatial spillover. The air quality of nearby cities is found to be negatively correlated with local environmental quality, possibly due to spatial attenuation effects and regional administrative barriers.
