CVM studies have demonstrated that the choice of a given method affects both the reliability and validity of welfare estimates (Boyle and Bishop, 1988; Hanley, 1991; KristrOm, 1993; Kealy and Turner, 1993). Detractors of the CVM use this argument to stress the inability of the method to individuate respondents' true preferences (true WfP), arguing that an appropriate methodology should be invariant to the elicitation format On the other hand, supporters of the CVM recognize that the elicitation format can have some influences in WfP answers, but they maintain also that it is possible to choose a method that can be incentive-compatible as well as biasreducing.
