Elasticidades económicas, ambientais e demográficas da procura de gás natural

Uma revisão





Demanda de gás natural, elasticidade de preço, elasticidade do rendimento


Este artigo realiza uma revisão abrangente de várias estimativas para respostas à procura de gás natural. Consideramos uma série de estudos empíricos realizados após 1950. O objetivo deste artigo é fornecer uma imagem completa, sintetizar e analisar os estudos publicados neste campo desde o primeiro estudo experimental até o início de 2019. Neste estudo, discutimos os métodos e técnicas utilizadas, a área de aplicação, as variáveis, as fontes de dados e o tamanho dos dados. A maioria dos estudos investigou as elasticidades preço e rendimento; muitos menos se concentraram em variáveis demográficas. Este trabalho será de significativa importância para futuros pesquisadores que pretendam analisar a demanda por gás natural.
