HETEROGENEOUS PREFERENCES FOR CONGESTION DURING A WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE

No 34133, Working Papers from University of Guelph, Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics

Abstract: This analysis breaks down the congestion levels experienced during specific parts of a wilderness canoe trip. By explicitly addressing the heterogeneity in preferences for congestion during a trip, we were able to determine the relative value canoeists place on solitude at different points of a trip. Our econometric model utilizes a random effects probit framework to efficiently estimate the welfare impacts of congestion on each trip portion. The welfare effects of congestion levels vary across wilderness areas, parts of a trip and individuals.
