Our Expertise

Our team uses advanced choice modelling methods to quantify the value of major infrastructure developments, medical device/drug treatments or policy changes that are often difficult to translate, communicate or measure. We are specialists in studying human decision making using choice-based measurement, delivering insights in an interactive dashboard that allows clients to explore preferences and perform what-if scenarios.

Types of studies at CaPPRe:

  • Community Value Mapping (Choice Experiments)
  • Community Patient Value Mapping (Choice Experiments)
  • Cost-Benefit Analyses (CBA) / Economic analyses
  • Pricing studies / Willingness to pay (WTP)
    • We work closely with government agencies and economic consultancies to generate willingness to pay estimates (consumer surplus) using advanced Discrete Choice methods. The outputs from these models are used in economic appraisals to help decision-makers (e.g., NSW Treasury) assess projects and decide whether to implement them.  
  • Utility and time trade-off studies
  • Demand forecasting
  • Market segmentation
  • Non-market valuation
    • This involves valuing the benefits of projects / policies which are not directly traded in markets (e.g., environment, government infrastructure, public health interventions etc.). Examples of non-market projects include:
      • The value to the community of upgrades to the Australian Museum (click here for further details)
      • The value to the community of new developments / attractions in regional NSW
      • The value to the community of conserving environmental areas
  • Feasibility studies
