The stated preference (SP) approach allows the individual features or attributes that make up a good to be valued. Experimental design to array attributes and attribute levels into choice sets is fundamental to SP. Respondents typically select one of two choice sets, along with the status quo alternative. SP has a number of advantages over other environmental valuation methods, such as orthogonality in attributes, which avoids colinearity problems of revealed preference methods. An application of SP to mouse hunting in Canada is presented.
