Use of Contingent Values of Wildlife and Habitat Preservation in Policy and Benefit–Cost Analyses

John Loomis

Chapter 13 in Handbook on Contingent Valuation, 2006 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The Handbook on Contingent Valuation is unique in that it focuses on contingent valuation as a method for evaluating environmental change. It examines econometric issues, conceptual underpinnings, implementation issues as well as alternatives to contingent valuation. Anna Alberini and James Kahn have compiled a comprehensive and original reference volume containing invaluable case studies that demonstrate the implementation of contingent valuation in a wide variety of applications. Chapters include those on the history of contingent valuation, a practical guide to its implementation, the use of experimental approaches, an ecological economics perspective on contingent valuation and approaches for developing nations.
