This research focuses on the effects of different types of service attributes and context-based government policies, along with product attributes, on Chinese consumers’ adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). Based on a stated choice experiment involving over 1,000 respondents in different cities of China, a mixed logit (MXL) model shows that typical...

There is a growing need for instruments to control and reduce the impacts of the increasing number of tourists visiting protected natural areas. Among these economic instruments, the use of access fees can have positive effects on enhancing environmental sustainability by reducing the number of visitors. Access fees are also a source of financing t...

In this paper we analyse which variables affect people reaction to urban pricing schemes. Most of works in this topic discover that the essential causes are not socioeconomic variables but the perceptions, attitudes and beliefs of respondents. In order to measure these concepts a Likert scale questionnaire was undertaken in a survey of 83 individua...

Community severance (CS) refers to the separation of people from facilities, services, and social networks within a community, and or people changing travel patterns due to the physical or psychological barriers created by transport corridors and their use. Separation of neighborhoods and reductions of accessibility are some of the main effects of...
Article
Full-text available
This paper investigates the value of attributes of theatrical productions using a joint revealed preference-stated preference (RP-SP) method. SP models have advantages over RP models, requiring less data and avoiding multicollinearity problems which often confound RP analysis. However, the advantage to joint RP-SP model is that theatre-goers choice...

Despite several decades of decline, cardiovascular diseases are still the most common causes of death in Western societies. Sedentary living and high fat diets contribute to the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. This paper analyses the trade-offs between lifestyle choices defined in terms of diet, physical activity, cost, and risk of cardiovas...
Article
This paper introduces the discrete choice model-paradigm of Random Regret Minimisation (RRM) to the field of health economics. The RRM is a regret-based model that explores a driver of choice different from the traditional utility-based Random Utility Maximisation (RUM). The RRM approach is based on the idea that, when choosing, individuals aim to...

The coast line of the Canary Islands (Spain) has suffered from a plague of Diadema antillarum (sea urchin) over the last decades. This has attracted the attention of local authorities since it is becoming a serious environmental problem. We set out to analyse the potential market for sea urchin meat in this region, where this species is not subject...
Article
Full-text available
heatres have a market bounded by the distance theatregoers are willing to travel to see shows and productions. This paper uses count data models (Poisson regression and negative binomial models) to investigate the determinants of attendance at a regional theatre in England. It uses booking data for 29 theatrical productions supplied by the theatre,...
Article
Full-text available
This paper investigates market segments for theatre demand using a latent class model. The model is applied using data from a stated preference survey implemented in a regional theatre in England. Results allow three classes of theatregoers to be identified. The largest and ‘main class’ comprises mainly affluent people who show a strong preference...
Article
Full-text available
This article examines people's preferences and demand for live theatre. It investigates the preferences for people attending a regional theatre, Northern Stage in Newcastle, in relation to other live theatres they could attend, and in relation to the attributes of theatrical productions and ticket price. It uses a Stated Preference (SP), discrete c...
Article
Full-text available
This paper investigates people's preferences for live theatre, and heterogeneity in willingness-to-pay (WTP). A stated preference discrete choice model estimates utility and WTP for different attributes of theatre productions. Previous studies assumed fixed coefficients across all theatre-goers. This study allows coefficients of attributes to vary...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Community Severance (CS) is one of the main environmental impacts that massive transport infrastructures produce on urban areas. Separation of di�erent areas and reducing accessibility might be one of the main e�ects of CS. These costs lack a proper appraisal based on willingness-to-pay (WTP). Using discrete choice models on a sample of a residents...

This paper assesses the degree to which a typical regional theatre engages with society. It uses postcodes from theatre booking data and compares the socioecenomic profiles of these postcodes with postcodes from which no theatregoers are drawn. A re-working of recent theories of class provides a conceptual context, whilst discriminant analysis is u...
Article
Passenger demand and, in particular, mode choice between the islands of Gran Canaria and Tenerife has experienced important changes in the last decade. In 2005 the jetfoil, which had been the dominant mode for many years, was replaced by a slower but cheaper fast ferry service. This induced important changes in the market shares of all competing mo...
Article
Discrete choice models analyse individual's decisions when they face choices among several alternatives. In the last decades these models have shown a notable improvement, with applications to a wide variety of fields, especially in transport. This work uses discrete choice models to analyse the corridor between two islands, Gran Canaria and Teneri...

Project
Currently, China is facing urgent needs to implement sustainable development. Low carbon innovations have key characteristics of dynamic uncertainty, multiple innovations co-existing with different levels of innovativeness, and network externalities during the innovation diffusion process. In the perspective of social-technical system evolution, this project will deeply explore the dynamic diffusion patterns and key influencing factors. Following the research guideline of “using theories to guide empirical studies and employing empirical evidences to refine theories”, this study will conduct three rounds of investigation at multiple levels. First of all, this research will theoretically build up complex socio-technical system of low carbon innovations based on the current knowledge and foreseeable trends. Next, by integrating segmental preferences to low carbon innovations and market structural change patterns, this research will develop a diffusion analytical model of low carbon innovations based on the heterogeneous preferences in segmental markets. Then, this research will conduct empirical studies in the new energy car market in China, which is of strategic importance and market representativeness, and examine the influences of a wide range of factors in socio-technical system on the diffusion of different new energy cars. Finally, this research will use the empirical results and the up-to-date development of low carbon innovations to drive the next round of theory development, which will update the socio-technical system of low carbon innovations. Through such iteration cycles from theories, methods to empirical study, this project will develop a key knowledge-creating tool for better driving the diffusion of low carbon innovations. Therefore, this project will provide both theoretical contributions and practical implications for accelerating the diffusion of low carbon innovations and facilitating low carbon transition in China.
