Spatial variation among green building certification categories: Does place matter? A rejoinder to Pushkar

Julie L Cidell, Alex Beata

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

In a comment on an earlier article (Cidell & Beata, 2009) in this journal, Pushkar (2013) critiqued our use of the one-way ANOVA test for distinguishing among different LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) credits being earned by buildings being certified as green in different U.S. regions. Her criticism is based on dependencies existing among the categories of LEED credits. However, we argue that in both conceptual and empirical terms, such dependencies are not a concern, and therefore our original results demonstrating the importance of regional differences in green buildings should stand.
