Addtional Notes

 

Because the sample was, on average, more educated than the population within the sampled Turkish district, it was necessary to test whether or not having a university education had a significant impact on mean respondent sensitivity to changes in the non-price attributes parameter values. There is a low education and high education sample in addition to the full sample WTP. 

Estimates of (unconditional) mean willingness to pay (WTP) values were derived for the MXL model with interactions based on unconditional (i.e. population) distributions, and 95% confidence intervals were calculated using the KrinskyRobb method
