          Abstract

          La escasez de agua en la Comarca Lagunera justifica la elaboración de estudios para analizar la demanda del recurso entre los usuarios. Para determinar los factores que influyen en la cantidad del líquido consumida en la zona metropolitana de la Comarca Lagunera, se estimaron dos funciones de demanda en el sector urbano de Torreón, Coahuila y Gómez Palacio, Durango. Los resultados indican que ésta responde de manera inelástica a cambios en las tarifas, con elasticidades de -0.20 y -0.18 para cada ciudad, respectivamente; que el gasto aumenta conforme se incrementan los ingresos del consumidor, y que el agua es un bien complementario de la energía eléctrica. Debido a la baja elasticidad precio de la demanda, no se recomienda subir las tarifas en el tiempo para disminuir el consumo, pues las alzas tendrían repercusiones reducidas sobre la cantidad usada.

          The scarcity of water in the Comarca Lagunera justifies studies analyzing water demand among consumers. For detecting which factors affect the amount of water used in the metropolitan area of the Comarca Lagunera, two water demand functions in the urban sector of Torreón, Coahuila, and Gómez Palacio, Durango were estimated.The results indicate that the water used responded in an inelastic way to changes in tariffs, with elasticities of -0.20 and -0.18 for each city, respectively; that water consumption increases as consumer income rises, and that water and electricity are complementary goods. Due to the low price elasticity of water demand, increasing rates over time is not recommended for reducing consumption, because such tariff increases would have little effect on the amount of water used.
