Use of Discrete Choice Experiments in health economics: An update of the literature
The vast majority of stated preference research in health economics has been conducted in the random utility model paradigm using discrete choice experiments (DCEs). Ryan and Gerard (2003) have reviewed the applications of DCEs in the field of health economics. We have updated this initial work to include studies published between 2001 and 2007. Following the methods of Ryan and Gerard, we assess the later body of work, with respect to the key characteristics of DCEs such as selection of attributes and levels, experimental design, preference measurement, estimation procedure and validity. Comparisons between the periods are undertaken in order to identify any emerging trends.
