Abstract:
When making decisions, policymakers often rely on benefit transfer estimates of environmental amenities when primary valuation studies are infeasible. However, various forms of uncertainty appear in the application of meta-analysis. We discuss several visual devices which applied analysts can deploy to clearly present select types of uncertainty into their work. Several examples from well-known metadatasets are presented. The empirical results suggest that these graphical devices allow greater depth of insight that what commonly appears in meta-regression analysis.
