Tick-borne Disease Risk and Recreational Choice – Choice Experiment Data

Description

This dataset is based on a choice experiment on tick-borne disease risk and recreational choice. It contains the variables used in the study “Valuation When Baselines Are Changing: Tick-borne Disease Risk and Recreational Choice” as well as data on additional variables collection in a survey with 1579 respondents in Sweden in 2013.

Understanding how changes in baseline risk influence preferences for risk reduction is important when valuing the welfare effects of environmental change, including the spread of disease. We conduct a survey-based choice experiment among respondents residing in areas with different prevalence of ticks and incidence of Lyme borreliosis (LB) and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in Sweden. Respondents face a trade-off between risk and travel cost when choosing between visiting recreational areas differing in prevalence of ticks and disease incidence. Our study indicates that ticks and the risk of tick-borne diseases significantly influence the choice of recreational area and have non-trivial welfare effects. The mean willingness to pay (WTP) per trip to avoid areas with
