DescriptionThis research explores the use of conjoint analysis to assess and understand wetland values. A conjoint rating survey was designed and mailed to landowners in the Laplatte River Basin (Lake Champlain) in Vermont. Landowners rated options to protect wetlands that varied by the wetland's ability to decrease pollutants entering Lake Champlain, value in providing food and shelter for wildlife, opportunities for outdoor recreation, surrounding land use, the presence of rare or unique vegetation, and cost to each household to protect. The analytical capabilities of the conjoint rating model are discussed.
