Abstract

This paper utilizes a polychotomous choice function to investigate the relationship between socioeconomic characteristics and willingness-to-pay for embedded environmental attributes. Specifically, a two-stage estimation procedure with an ordered probit selection rule is used to predict the premium payers and the magnitude of the premium they are willing to pay.
