This paper takes the panel data of 17 cities in Shandong Province from 2000 to 2016 as a sample, establishes a population and economic model based on the STIRPAT model, and uses the generalized least squares method (FGLS) to measure the impact of urban sprawl on air pollution. The results show that there is widespread urban sprawl in Shandong Province, and urban sprawl reduces air pollution; population size is negatively correlated with air pollution; economic growth, FDI has a significant positive impact on air pollution, and the “pollution paradise” hypothesis is established; public transportation The development is conducive to alleviating air pollution. Therefore, transforming the concept of urban development, establishing an intensive city with optimal population carrying capacity, and promoting the coordinated development of economy, new urbanization and environmental protection are the key measures to mitigate air pollution.
