TRICHOTOMOUS CHOICE: A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO DUAL RESPONSE OBJECTIVES IN DICHOTOMOUS CHOICE CONTINGENT VALUATION QUESTIONS

John Loomis, Kerri Traynor and Thomas C. Brown

Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 1999, vol. 24, issue 2, 12

Abstract: We investigate the possibility that some respondents to a dichotomous choice question vote YES, even though they would not pay the posted dollar amount in order to register support for the project or policy. A trichotomous choice question format is proposed to determine if allowing respondents the opportunity to vote in favor of a project at an amount less than their bid affects estimated willingness to pay. Using univariate and multivariate tests, we find the trichotomous choice question format reduces the number of YES responses and produces a statistically significant decrease in willingness to pay for an open-space program.
