I just previewed Stated Preference Methods Using R by Aizaki, Nakatani and Sato.The A-P Sounds data that Tim, Ju-Chin Huang and myself used to get to know each other better is provided with the book and used as an example. Here is the double bounded Turnbull:
Here is the endorsement I wrote for the book:
There are a number of very expensive statistical packages that can be used to analyze stated preference data. R is free so it is wonderful for teaching undergraduate students and others who don’t have access to expensive packages. Aizaki, Nakatani and Sato have provided a valuable reference book for stated preference researchers and teachers who want to use R. I used the book to install R and the contingent valuation package in a few minutes. I was estimating CVM models soon afterwards. I’m especially excited that the package contains an easy to use nonparametric willingness to pay estimator that is superior to the spreadsheet methods I’ve been using for years. The package includes very well known (Exxon Valdez) and less well known (Albemarle-Pamlico) contingent valuation data. These data allow the user to play around with the package and compare results to what has been published in the literature. This book is an ideal reference for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental valuation.
