Abstract:

This study is regarded as an applied research in terms of objective and an ex post facto research in terms of data collection, because past data of the research variables is used. Also it is a descriptive- correlative research. Data is gathered by using the library method. Also a major part of data pertaining to the research variables has been derived from time series data of the World Bank and Yale University. To determine the relation between environmental quality indices and energy consumption, data pertaining to the research variables namely, energy consumption based on oil consumption (ENERGY), under-5 children mortality (CHMORT), agricultural subsidies (AGSUB), access to drinking water (WATSUP), access to sanitation (ACSAT), CO2 per capita (CO2CAP) during 2007 to 2011 was used. The statistical universe of this study comprises high energy-consuming countries namely, America, China, Japan, India and Russia. Panel data and Chow Test (constrained F test) have been applied to select the fixed effects. The main result of this study indicates that there is a significant relation between life quality indices (Agricultural subsidies, access to sanitation, under-5 children mortality, CO2 per capita, access to drinking water) and energy consumption. The effect of this relation for agricultural subsidies, access to sanitation, under-5 children mortality, CO2 capitation, access to drinking water indices are 17.8, 68.57, 21.16, 129.77, 4.03, respectively.
