China has carried out a comprehensive new type of urbanization. However, environmental problems in the process of urbanization need to be paid attention to, and urban planning needs to be carried out scientifically and rationally to achieve sustainable and healthy development. This study uses the STEPRAY model and the ridge regression analysis method to study the environmental effects of economic development in the process of urbanization in X city. The basic indicators of urbanization indicators and environmental indicators for 1998-2012 were selected for statistical analysis. Among them, the urbanization index includes the resident population, the proportion of the working-age population and the urbanization rate. Environmental indicators include waste and wastewater discharges, as well as concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide. Through the results of the research, we can draw the urbanization index which causes environmental pollution, provide the basis for the improvement of urban environment, and it is of great significance to the urbanization construction and sustainable development of our country.
