Stay at Home: The Impact of Air Pollution on Korean Baseball Game
People tend to avoid pollution to protect their health and pollution decreases economic productivity. So, high levels of air pollution can cause people to avoid outdoor activities. This paper analyzes the impact of air pollution on Korean baseball attendance. Especially, particulate matters are focused in estimation. The results show that the levels of PM are not effective on attendance but the stage bad of PM is effective. When the stage bad of PM 2.5 is occurred, it reduces roughly 8% of attendance. This amount is similar with the impact of raining. The impact of other pollution and the PM level in previous days are estimated but there are not significant results.
