      ’Protest zeros’ occur when respondents reject some aspect of the contingent valuation (CV) market scenario by reporting a zero value even though they place a positive value on the amenity being valued. This is inevitable even in the best-designed CV study, and, when excluded on an ad hoc basis, may cause a selection bias problem.

Contingent Valuation Analysis of Willingness to Pay To Reduce Childhood Obesity. [John Cawley] -- Several recent surveys have asked Americans whether they support policies to reduce childhood obesity.

There is reason for skepticism of such surveys because people are not confronted with the tax. The average willingness to pay for obesity reduction therapy which could reduce weight by 5 kg in 3 months is estimated to be NT$12, (US$) among the sample respondents.

The Role of Contingent Valuation in Benefit-Cost Analysis Economists tend to think that markets work well most of the time. When we say that markets “work well” we mean that they efficiently allocate resources.

Resources that are allocated efficiently are employed in those uses where the marginal benefits are equal to the marginal costs. Title(s): Contingent valuation analysis of willingness to pay to reduce childhood obesity/ John Cawley.

Consumer surplus losses from reduced consumption of addictive goods that are measured relative to market demand schedules overestimate the social cost of cessation interventions.
