Environmental behaviour and conditions vary with income
In sum, 5.3% of individuals within the lowest household income third report a less good or poor quality of life-satisfaction, compared to 1.3% of individuals within the highest income third. Similarly, noise affected individuals within the lowest income group (40.4%) more frequently than individuals in the highest income group (36.9%). There are also differences regarding environmental behaviour: individuals in the highest income group buy organic food to a much larger extent than individuals in the middle or lowest income group. By contrast, sustainable mobility behaviour – frequent use of public transport and rare use of the car – was negatively correlated with income.
