 Abstract
This study verified the water saving effect in case of raising water rate depends on water rate awareness. The study results showed that the perceived appropriacy of government aid(p<.001), home water rate(p<.01), water rate pricing system, water rate, water rate diffrences depend on use and area(p<.05) significantly affected the degree of agreement of raising water rate. Also, education, residence, member of household, occipation, monthly household income, monthly water rate significantly affected the degree of agreement of raising water rate, consumer behavior for saving water. This study provided implication for water rate pricing policy by analyzing the water saving effect in case of raising water rate depends on water rate awareness and revealing the determinants of the degree of agreement of raising water rate.
