This chapter discusses the role of behavioral experiments in evaluation of individual economic values. Principles of experimental design play a role in application and assessment of non-market valuation methods. Experiments can be employed to assess the formation of preferences and the role of personal characteristics, social factors, and economic constraints on economic values. Experiments can be used to test the efficacy of nonmarket valuation methods and to study the effect of the valuation task, information, and context on valuation responses. We discuss these issues in turn, incorporating pertinent literature, to provide a review and synthesis of experimental methods in valuation.
