Designing contingent valuation scenarios for environmental health: The case of childhood asthma
Valuation of morbidity associated with childhood asthma is signiâ€¦cant both to policy and to non-market valuation methodologies. Our results show that household perceptions and beliefs, such as belief in oneâ€™s ability to predict and control asthma attacks, and relative perceptions of the overall burden asthma places on a family, have a larger impact on valuation than traditional measures of asthma severity. More generally, our approach can be applied to other chronic illnesses as well, such as diabetes or chronic pain.
