I often read your "cromulent" blog and know that you are an expert in CVM. I am working on my master thesis applying CVM to .... I plan to use double-bounded dichotomous questions to elicit WTP.
I want to ask you whether there is a way to control for incentive incompatibility and starting point bias. If it is available, could you please point me to the guidance material?
Here are two papers that describe how I would do it:
Whitehead, John C. "Incentive incompatibility and starting-point bias in iterative valuation questions." Land Economics 78, no. 2 (2002): 285-297.
Whitehead, John C. "Incentive incompatibility and starting-point bias in iterative valuation questions: reply." Land Economics (2004): 316-319.Good luck!And thanks for reading the blog!
