  • Champ, Patricia A. and Richard C. Bishop (2002). Are Actual Donations to the Provision of a Public Good Sensitive to the Elicitation Format?
    RMRS - RWU 4851 Discussion Paper
    (212 KB PDF file)

    This study examines elicitation effects for actual donations to a public good. Specifically, responses to a dichotomous choice format are compared to responses to a payment card format. We find that in this actual donation situation, the elicitation format affects the distribution of donations. Based on this result we argue that elicitation effects found in contingent valuation studies may not be due the hypothetical nature of the decision making context as has been suggested in previous studies.
