Abstract: Excerpt of the introduction: [...] This study estimates car drivers’ willingness to pay (WTP) for road safety improvements in North Cyprus. The contingent valuation method (CVM) and choice experiment (CE) methods were used to estimate the welfare change for identical road safety improvements where different attributes were used in the utility functions as the basis for calculating welfare change estimates [...]. In the CVM survey, car drivers were asked directly to state their maximum WTP for the non-market value of road safety, in which demand is unobservable. In the CE survey, car drivers were asked to choose between different alternative scenarios of types of roads and safety features. These choice sets were varied according to a statistical design in order to maximize the precision of the estimates. The paper is organized in five further sections. Section 2 analyzes the econometric method and specification, while Section 3 presents the CE and CVM design. Section 4 describes the econometric analysis. Section 5 provides the resulting model estimates, and Section 6 closes the paper with a discussion and briefly presents our conclusion.
