Abstract [en]

This study examines the effect on respondents’ willingness to pay to reduce mortality risk by the order of the questions in a stated preference study. Using answers from an experiment conducted on a Swedish sample where respondents’ cognitive ability was measured and where they participated in a contingent valuation survey, it was found that scale sensitivity is strongest when respondents are asked about a smaller risk reduction first (‘bottom-up’ approach). This contradicts some previous evidence in the literature. It was also found that the respondents’ cognitive ability is more important for showing scale sensitivity when respondents are asked about a larger risk reduction first (‘top-down’ approach), also reinforcing the result that a ‘bottom-up’ approach is more consistent with answers in line with theoretical predictions for a larger proportion of respondents.
