An Evaluation of Public Preferences for Superfund Site Cleanup, Volume II: Pilot Study

In volume II, the authors present the detailed technical results of a pilot market research study that was conducted to determine preferences for the specific type and level of cleanup desired by the public at Superfund sites. The focus of this volume is on the market research approach using a choice methodology for obtaining implied values. Chapter 1 is an overview and executive summary. Chapter 2 provides a detailed description of the survey instruments used in the pilot study. Chapter 3 describes the verbal protocol procedure used in designing the survey instruments. Chapter 4 concerns the recruiting protocols for the participants in the pilot study and reactions of participants to the survey. Chapter 5 estimates a model of cleanup options using conditional logit and then estimates the willingness to pay for each cleanup option. Chapter 6 presents conclusions. Appendices A and B are not included in the downloadable version below. They exist only in hard copy form and are kept only in the NCEE files for this report.
