Abstract

An important consideration in the development of regulations and policies that administer natural resources in an area is the value of the non-market activities supported by those lands. Little attention has been paid to the aggregate value of large geographic areas. This analysis builds a utility-theoretic price index and utilizes this index to estimate an aggregate Poisson demand to value backcountry recreational hiking opportunities in northern California.
