Choice experiment of shared wells in Otsuchi


Otsuchi is a small Japanese town that was severely damaged by the tsunami in March 2011. This is a water-rich town and had a number of flowing wells in its residential areas before the tsunami. These wells are being lost due to the embankment of the residential areas to reduce future tsunami risks. The primary objectives of this survey were to estimate needs for a new shared well among Otsuchi citizens and identify impacts of changing various attributes of the shared well on their preferences.

A mall-intercept survey was conducted at the Mast Shopping Center, Otsuchi, during August 1719, 2015.

Questionnaire used in this survey

The third section of choice questions had seven different patterns. We will show "Pattern 1" as an example.
