**Abstract:**
Demand for deer hunting trips was estimated using statistical models based on the normal, Poisson, and negative binomial probability laws. Some of the models accounted for existing sampling truncation. Estimates of Marshallian and Hicksian welfare measures are presented, accompanied by 90 percent confidence intervals based on Krinsky and Robb's procedure. For each of the statistical models, the Hicksian measures are found to be very close to the Marshallian measures, with similar confidence intervals. Accounting for the truncation of the dependent variable has a statistically significant effect on the resulting estimates of welfare measures. Copyright 1991 by MIT Press.
