This study was undertaken to provide some of the social values for the non-timber component of the Millar Western-NorSask Forest Management License Agreement. This study estimates the changes in the value of a recreational hunting experience as one, or a combination of several, of the following...
Assessing Impacts of Environmental Change on Aboriginal People: An Economic Examination of Subsistence Resource Use and ValueDownload
The report describes the research design, data collection and preliminary analysis of an economic assessment on non-timber resource use by Aboriginal People in Northwest Saskatchewan. The project is designed to develop methods of valuing resource use by Aboriginal People so that these values can...
Given the large number of choices that consumers make each day it seems likely that they will generally adopt decision strategies that minimize cognitive effort, particularly with low price products such as most items found in a supermarket. One such strategy may be to simply choose what has been...
Wood is the primary source of household energy for many African countries. Fuelwood is used for cooking meals, heating homes (as the season requires), making charcoal, etc. Much of the existing literature concerning fuelwood is broad in scope and does not provide insights into the microeconomic...
In Search of Forest Resource Values of Aboriginal Peoples: The Applicability of Non-Market Valuation TechniquesDownload
The purpose of this paper is to present an interdisciplinary model and a process for considering the applicability of non-market valuation techniques to Aboriginal Peoples. These techniques are widely used in non-Aboriginal contexts as methods of providing information about preferences over...
A stated preference model and a revealed preference model for recreational site choice are examined and compared. Both models are based on random utility theory and the data are obtained from the same individuals. The stated preference model is based on the respondent's choice from hypothetical...

Contingent valuation (CV) has been employed by economists for approximately 30 years to value changes in natural resources and environments. Estimating the value of resource improvements or damages is analogous to the problem in marketing research of estimating the demand for new products or...
The Effect of Choice Environment and Task Demands on Consumer Behavior: Discriminating Between Contribution and ConfusionDownload
Choices, whether they are made in actual markets (revealed preferences or RP) or in surveys (stated preference of SP), provide information about the preferences of individuals. These choices also contain what researchers interpret as \"noise\" or unexplained variation; a variety of techniques...
Non-market Valuation Biases Due to Aboriginal Cultural Characteristics in Northern Saskatchewan: The Values Structures ComponentDownload
Current non-market valuation techniques have been developed based on assumptions about values held within the Eurocentred culture. Contentions between cultures over natural resources are hypothesized to occur because of differences in held values resulting in different values being assigned to...
