A Study of the Relationship among Hubei’s Population Growth, Environmental Quality and Economic Development

Fen Song and Wang Mingxian

Abstract:
This study analyzes the relationship among Hubei’s population growth, economic development and environmental quality. The results show that, in recent years, Hubei's population growth rate has gradually decreased, but large natural growth has promoted the expansion of economic scale to a certain extent. Economic development influenced the distribution of population and increased demand for resources, resulting in increased pollution emissions. Data shows that, with the economic development, Hubei’s environmental quality was in the right part of the EKC curve, namely the change for the better. But exhaust emission displayed that industry had extensive development pattern. Therefore, measures should be taken to improve the contradiction between environment and economy.
