Abstract
Description
Concerns over climate change, energy security, and global instability have captured the public’s attention. In light of these concerns, an idea has taken root that the economy and the environment need not be at odds with one another. The ‘green economy’ refers to those workers and businesses that have a direct financial incentive to engage in environmentally beneficial activities. A directive has been established to better understand the green economy, so that effective policies can be designed and properly evaluated. To assist in that goal, the Center for Applied Demography & Survey Research (the Center) recently completed a detailed analysis of Delaware’s green economy.
