Title: Survey Response-Related Biases in Contingent Valuation: Concepts, Remedies, and Empirical Application to Valuing Aquatic Plant Management

Author: Messonnier, Mark L.; Bergstrom, John C.; Cornwell, Chrisopher M.; Teasley, R. Jeff; Cordell, H. Ken;

Date: 2000

Source: Amer. J. Agr. Econ. 83 (May 2000): 438-450

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Simple nonresponse and selection biases that may occur in survey research such as contingent valuation applications are discussed and tested. Correction mechanisms for these types of biases are demonstrated. Results indicate the importance of testing and correcting for unit and item nonresponse bias in contingent valuation survey data. When sample nonresponse and selection bias go uncorrected, welfare measures may be overestimated or underestimated contributing to potential errors in resource policy and management decisions.

Keywords: survey research, contingent valuation, sample nonresponse bias, sample selection bias
