IEc designs and implements studies employing the full suite of market and non-market valuation techniques including market price methods, contingent valuation, attribute-based or choice modeling methods, hedonics, and travel cost demand modeling. We also develop innovative approaches utilizing existing research and data when time and resource constraints preclude the conduct of primary research.

Project Example
For the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, IEc developed a database of over 100 sportfishing valuation studies. The database provides detailed information on species, habitat, fishing mode, region, consumer surplus estimate(s), and valuation methodology.
