1. The value of forests for tourism in Sweden

1995 (English)In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 22, no 3, 671-680 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Sweden has a vast quantity of forests and the Right of Common Access allows tourists to freely enter any forest no matter who owns it. An economic valuation study was carried out in two tourism areas, one in the southern part of the country and one in the northern part. It was shown that a considerable portion of the value to tourists is attributable to forest characteristics. Furthermore, the results suggest that this value can be increased by modifying forest management practices; for example, by making clearcuts smaller, even if there were more of them, and by increasing the proportion of broad leaved trees in forest stands.

Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on problems associated with nonresponse in Contingent Valuation surveys. The results from a telephone follow-up survey show that value inference can be considerably improved by information on nonrespondents' attitudes.

1999 (English)In: Land Economics, ISSN 0023-7639, E-ISSN 1543-8325, Vol. 75, no 2, 284-294 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Welfare change estimates obtained from discrete-response contingent valuation experiments normally assume a particular distribution of willingness-to-pay (WTP). Using conventional microeconomy theory, we derive upper and lower bounds on such  estimates. These bounds are interpreted statistically in terms of non-parametric estimators of mean WTP and its variance. Two contingent valuation surveys illustrate the proposed bounds, and the performances of the variance estimators are scrutinized with a Monte Carlo simulation. All calculations can be made by hand, .simplifying communication among those involved in interpreting results from contingent valuation studies using discrete-response data. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
