Meta‐database on stated preference studies of mortality risk valuation
Abstract:This chapter describes the database that was used in the meta‐analyses described further in Chapter 3. First, an account is given of how the value of statistical life (VSL) estimates were collected. Next, various characteristics of the estimates, and of the surveys they stem from are illustrated. The variations in the estimates in the unscreened sample across risk contexts, countries covered, survey implementation method, types of elicitation questions, etc., are described.
