Title Willingness to pay for a clear night sky: use of the contingent valuation method Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Applied Economics Letters Abbreviated Journal Applied Economics Letters
Volume 17 Issue 11 Pages 1095-1103
Keywords economics; contingent valuation method; light pollution
Abstract This article applies the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) to the issue of night sky pollution. Light pollution decreases the ability to view a clear, unobstructed night sky. We administered a survey to the students of the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) to obtain estimates of Willingness To Pay (WTP) to improve night sky visibility and to prevent deterioration in visibility. This is the first CVM study that attempts to distinguish between these different WTPs. We find that students are willing to pay significantly more for a larger improvement in night sky conditions. We also find significant differences in WTP to improve versus prevent deterioration in night sky conditions.
