Behavioural Implications of Nonmarket Valuation Models

A variety of methods exist for the valuation of nonmarket benefits. Some mechanisms determine these values from market data while others use hypothetical questions. This paper examines these mechanisms for valuing nonmarket goods and the attempts to validate these measures. The assumptions and implications of the nonmarket valuation techniques are examined and the various attempts at validation of the results are discussed. In light of the limitations of these validation approaches, a new validation procedure is suggested and an application is presented.
