Measuring The Recreational Use Value Of Migratory Shorebirds: A Stated Preference Study Of Birdwatching On The Delaware Bay, Kelley Myers, George Parsons, Peter Edwards 2010 University of Delaware

Measuring The Recreational Use Value Of Migratory Shorebirds: A Stated Preference Study Of Birdwatching On The Delaware Bay, Kelley Myers, George Parsons, Peter Edwards

George R. Parsons

In this article we estimate the recreational use value of household trips to view shorebirds during the annual horseshoe crab/shorebird migration on the Delaware Bay. We use contingent valuation to estimate the value of day and overnight trips separately and use a discrete choice question followed by a payment-card question to generate our valuation data. Our best estimates for the value of a day trip is about $66 - $90/household and for an overnight trip is about $200 - $425/household (2008$). Our data are from the 2008 season, and our average household size is 1.66. For some context ...

Compensatory Restoration In A Random Utility Model Of Recreation Demand, George Parsons, Ami Kang 2010 University of Delaware

Compensatory Restoration In A Random Utility Model Of Recreation Demand, George Parsons, Ami Kang

George R. Parsons

Natural Resource Damage Assessment cases often call for compensation in non-monetary or restoration equivalent terms. In this paper we present an approach that uses a conventional economic model, a travel-cost random utility model of site choice, to determine compensatory restoration equivalents for hypothetical beach closures on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Our focus is on closures of beaches on the Padre Island National Seashore and compensation for day-trip users. We use a mixed logit site choice model in our application with revealed preference data. Using the random utility model we identify restoration projects (changes in beach characteristics) that pass a ...


Effects Of Information About Invasive Species On Risk Perception And Seafood Demand By Gender And Race, Timothy Haab, John Whitehead, George Parsons, Jamie Price 2010 Ohio State University

Effects Of Information About Invasive Species On Risk Perception And Seafood Demand By Gender And Race, Timothy Haab, John Whitehead, George Parsons, Jamie Price

George R. Parsons

In this paper we consider the effects of negative and positive risk information on perceived seafood risks and seafood consumption by gender and race. The data is from a Mid-Atlantic survey of coastal seafood consumers. We elicit risk perceptions in three risk scenarios with a dichotomous choice with a follow-up question format. We elicit continuous revealed and stated preference seafood consumption in nine risk and price scenarios. Analysis in four gender and race categories indicates that demographic groups respond to the positive and negative information in different ways. Communication of risk information as risk mitigation policy is a challenge.

Is Environmental Justice Good For White Folks?, Michael Ash, James Boyce, Grace Chang, Helen Scharber 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Is Environmental Justice Good For White Folks?, Michael Ash, James Boyce, Grace Chang, Helen Scharber

James K. Boyce

This paper examines spatial variations in exposure to toxic air pollution from industrial facilities in urban areas of the United States, using geographic microdata from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Risk‐Screening Environmental Indicators project. We find that average exposure in an urban area is positively correlated with the extent of racial and ethnic disparity in the distribution of the exposure burden. This correlation could arise from causal linkages in either or both directions: the ability to displace pollution onto minorities may lower the effective cost of pollution for industrial firms; and higher average pollution burdens may induce ...
