    • Eliciting Individual-Specific Discount Rates 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann; Gerdes, Geoffrey R. (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2003-01-01)
      Longstanding debate over the appropriate social discount rate for public projects stems from our lack of knowledge about how individual discount rates vary across people and across choice contexts. Using a sample of roughly ...
    • An Empirical Model of Demand for Future Health States when Valuing Risk-Mitigating Programs 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann; DeShazo, J. R. (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2004-03)
      We develop a structural option price model in which individuals choose among competing risk-mitigating programs to alter their probability of experiencing future years in various degraded health states. The novel aspects ...
    • Evidence of Environmental Migration: Housing values alone may not capture the full effects of local environmental disamenities 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann; McConnaha, Ian (University of Oregon, Dept of Economics, 2005-01-01)
      In hedonic property value models, economists typically assume that changing perceptions of environmental risk should be captured by changes in housing prices. However, for long-lived environmental problems, we find that ...
    • Individual Option Prices for Climate Change Mitigation 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2002-07-20)
      Willingness to pay for climate change mitigation depends on people's perceptions about just how bad things will get if nothing is done. Individual subjective distributions for future climate conditions are combined with ...
    • Scenario Adjustment in Stated Preference Research 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann; DeShazo, J. R.; Johnson, Erica H. (University of Oregon, Dept of Economics, 2009-11-22)
      Stated preference (SP) survey methods have been used increasingly to assess willingness to pay for a wide variety of non-market goods and services, including reductions in risks to life and health. Poorly designed SP ...
    • Superfund Taint and Neighborhood Change: Ethnicity, Age Distributions, and Household Structure 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann; Crawford, Graham D. (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2003-12)
      Certain sociodemographic groups often seem to be relatively more concentrated near environmental hazards than in the surrounding community. It is well-known that snapshot cross-sectional statistical analyses cannot reveal ...
    • Test of Choice Set Misspecification for Discrete Models of Consumer Choice 

      DeShazo, J. R.; Cameron, Trudy Ann; Saenz, Manrique, 1971- (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2001-11-05)
      We develop and evaluate a test of choice set misspecification for a multinomial logit choice model. This test determines whether the choice set designated by the researcher mistakenly assigns relevant substitutes to the ...
    • Updating Subjective Risks in the Presence of Conflicting Information: An Application to Climate Change 

      Cameron, Trudy Ann (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2001-07-14)
      Willingness to support public programs for risk management often depends on individual subjective risk perceptions in the face of uncertain science. As part of a larger study concerning climate change, we explore individual ...
