Do Government Economists Value AAEA Conferences
- This article examines the importance and value of attending the annual summer conference of the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) by U.S. Federal government economists. A choice-based conjoint analysis of government funding of five research-facilitating resources, including travel and nontravel resources, shows that respondents have a clear preference for their government agency funding the travel-related resources over the other resources. Furthermore, using the contingent valuation method, we find that these economists would have been willing to pay $195 to $620 to have attended their last AAEA conference, with the bounds on this range depending on modeling assumptions.
