Abstract

This paper surveys the main issues in the literature on residential water demand. Several tariff types and their objectives are analyzed. Then, the main contributions to the literature on residential water demand estimation are reviewed, with a particular attention to variables, specification model, data set, and the most common econometric problems. The paper concludes with comments on future trends and a summary of the contents of the study. This study estimates the demand for domestic water in a fast-growing city of a developing country. The monthly data for 40 randomly selected households for a six-year period were used for the estimation. There were three price hikes during the study period, which provided adequate variation in the prices for an econometric estimation. A log–log model was selected as a proper specification for the demand function. Marginal price, difference price, income, and household size were used as the independent variables. After correcting the data for auto-correlation and heteroscedasticity, theŽnal model was estimated. Results show all the expected signs with statistical significance. Price elasticity (marginal) and income elasticity for water in the study area are estimated to be 20.34 and 0.08, respectively. Thus, our present findings confirm the previous findings that water is neither price- nor income-elastic. Given these responses, a price hike may not help conserve water in the study area. However, very low price responsiveness can be used to increase water revenues of the municipality. This present paper attempts to review the tariff structures present in PMC, and comparative analysis of water budget. The objective of the present paper in this context is to analyze the pricing pattern of water supply.

Key Words
