One of a series of reports on RAND's research program investigating the growing demand for energy, this study deals with the differential effects of increases in the price of electric power on various income groups. In particular, it examines the effects of electricity price increases in the area served by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Intended as an aid to policymakers and analysts concerned with energy policy in California, it extends the analysis begun earlier in R-1050 by focusing on the Los Angeles area and using 1970-1971 data.
