Nebraska’s Rainwater Basin wetland region is recognized internationally as a significant wetland complex for migratory waterfowl habitat. A contingent valuation study was undertaken to determine Nebraskan’s willingness-to-pay for government acquisition/management programs for this resource. The study consisted of a double bounded referendum format. A censored regression model was utilized for data analysis.
