Assessing Sustainability of Agricultural Systems: Evidence from a Conjoint Choice Survey


  • Sydorovych, Olha
  • Wossink, Ada


This study identifies a list of economic, social, and ecological agricultural sustainability attributes based on experts' opinions. Next, the attributes are used in a conjoint choice experiment which enables direct extraction of the relative impact of the attributes and attribute levels on individual respondents' perception of overall sustainability.
