Modelling attribute non-attendance in choice experiments for rural landscape valuation
Non-market effects of agriculture are often estimated using discrete choice models from stated preference surveys. In this context we propose two ways of modelling attribute non-attendance. The first
Contemporary Guidance for Stated Preference Studies
This article proposes contemporary best-practice recommendations for stated preference (SP) studies used to inform decision making, grounded in the accumulated body of peer-reviewed literature. These
Design Efficiency for Non-Market Valuation with Choice Modelling: How to Measure it, What to Report and Why
We review the basic principles for the evaluation of design efficiency in discrete choice modelling with a focus on efficiency of WTP estimates from the multinomial logit model. The discussion is
Performance of Error Component Models for Status-Quo Effects in Choice Experiments
Environmental economists have advocated the use of choice modelling in environmental valuation. Standard approaches employ choice sets including one alternative depicting the status-quo, yet the
Utility in Willingness to Pay Space: A Tool to Address Confounding Random Scale Effects in Destination Choice to the Alps
We compare two approaches for estimating the distribution of consumers' willingness to pay (WTP) in discrete choice models. The usual procedure is to estimate the distribution of the utility
Incorporating Discontinuous Preferences into the Analysis of Discrete Choice Experiments
Data from a discrete choice experiment on improvements of rural landscape attributes are used to investigate the implications of discontinuous preferences on willingness to pay estimates. Using a
Non-attendance to attributes in environmental choice analysis: a latent class specification
There is a growing literature on the design and use of stated choice experiments. Analysts have developed sophisticated ways of analysing such data, using a form of discrete choice model to identify
The Effect of Protest Votes on the Estimates of WTP for Use Values of Recreational Sites
Contingent valuation studies are often characterized by a considerable number of protest responses, which may cause selectivity bias on the final estimates for WTP. Sample selection models can detect
