Annotation:
Operationalizing two indicators of toxic waste, this research identifies different associations of toxic wastes with several socioeconomic variables. Results show that urban regions are more likely to suffer from unlicensed toxic waste sites that contribute nothing to local economies, while suburban regions are disproportionately exposed to income-generating industrial emissions. In conclusion, the race vs. class debate in the field originates partially in a methodological debate over indicators.
