Arne and Stas, Thanks much for your very generous help with my problem. I think we now have at least two more options to derive some estimates thanks to your suggestions. Regards, Dan Petrolia >>> "Arne Risa Hole" <arnehole@gmail.com> 5/2/2008 5:28 AM >>> I agree with Stas that -nlcom- is likely to be a good alternative to the bootstrap but it's worth keeping in mind that it will not be very accurate if the distribution of mean WTP is highly non-normal. This could be the case since WTP is often derived as a function of the ratio of coefficient estimates. In this case the parametric bootstrap represents a compromise between accuracy (-bootstrap-) and computing speed (-nlcom-).
