Abstract

El objetivo del trabajo es presentar una revisión metodológica acerca de cómo estimar desde un punto de vista económico las modificaciones que se producen en el bienestar de una persona o grupo de personas al cambiar la calidad del servicio público de agua potable. Para ello se propone utilizar el método de la valuación contingente, método del cual se discuten tanto sus aspectos teóricos como su aplicación práctica. La relevancia del problema se debe a que la disposición a pagar que los usuarios muestren por las mejoras en los niveles de calidad de los servicios públicos debe ser un insumo fundamental para el regulador al momento de establecer cuáles costos van a poder ser trasladados a las tarifas.
