Monetary Incentive Response Effects in Contingent Valuation Mail Surveys
Monetary incentives are one approach for increasing response rates in contingent valuation surveys. We present the results of a case study desgined to assess the effect of incentives on response rates and respondent behavior. We compare response rates and quality of answers for five incentive levels. Including incentives increased the response rate, decreased item non-response rates, but had not effect on stated willingness-to-pay.
