The Risks of Nuclear Disaster and Its Impact on Housing Prices
(), Matz Dahlberg
() and Gustav Engström
Abstract: Using a data set on housing sales transactions we explore
the potential effect of the Fukushima disaster on housing prices in Sweden.
In contrast to most earlier findings in other countries we do not find any
disproportionate effect from the Fukushima disaster on housing prices in
vicinity of nuclear power plants in Sweden.
