Abstract

In this paper, we generalize existing approaches to the treatment of stated attribute non-attendance data in discrete choice experiments by allowing attribute specifc impacts. We implement this ap- proach by employing an extended hierarchical Bayes logit model specifcation. To illustrate this approach, we consider data collected to examine Indian consumers preferences for traditional aro- matic rice varieties. Our results regarding stated attribute non-attendance reveal that, our new approach shrinks marginal utilities of non-attenders substantially compared to stated attenders, with signifcant di¤erences in the shrinkage between some of the attributes. In addition, our results reveal the way in which non-attendance of attributes interact with each other and the impact that this has on the distribution of willingness to pay estimates.
