Abstract

The main focus of this thesis is how to optimally choose a set or sets of cutpoints (in a categorized survey question) which are offered to respondents. In the case of several sets, a further issue is how to allocate sampled subjects to these sets (design points). Applications include Contingent Valuation (CV) studies (surveys on a population’s willingness to pay for a service or public good) and market research studies which might include for example a question on individual incomes.
