Policy makers are often interested in transferring benefit estimates made in one situation to related circumstances. This transfer of values may be inaccurate if significant differences exist between the sites in question, or if different population groups are involved. To identify where benefit transfer applications may be appropriate, the results of similar Choice Modelling experiments across different sites and population groups are reported. The experiments were centred on a major river catchment in Queensland, Australia, and indicate that some benefit transfers are possible.
