Contingency tables for the suggested bids and the number of respondents saying yes or no to the bids in the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill CVM survey.

Usage

Format

Both CarsonSB and CarsonDB are data frame objects of contingency tables.

For CarsonSB,

T1

a bid expressd in USD.

Y

a number of respondents accepting the bid.

N

a number of respondents not accepting the bid.

For CarsonDB,

T1

a first stage bid expressd in USD.

TU

a second stage bid increased from the first one, expressd in USD.

TL

a second stage bid decreased from the first one, expressd in USD.

yy

a number of respondents accepting both the first and the second bids.

yn

a number of respondents accepting only the first bid.

ny

a number of respondents accepting only the second bid.

nn

a number of respondents not accepting the first nor the second bids.

Details

Out of CarsonSB and CarsonSB, one may reconstruct the original yes/no type of data for 1043 observations. See the example for CarsonSB.

## The following lines of code reconstruct the original yes/no type of data

## namely, bid1 and R1. The conversion into a simole data frame object can be 
## done either manually or by using the \code{ct2df} function. 
data(CarsonSB)

## Using the \code{ct2df} function
CarsonSB.dat <- ct2df(
  x    = CarsonSB,
  bid1 = "T1",
  y    = "Y",
  n    = "N",
  type = "single")
head(CarsonSB.dat)

# Manual conversion
n <- rowSums(CarsonSB[, -1])

          rep(CarsonSB$T1[2], n[2]), 
          rep(CarsonSB$T1[3], n[3]), 
          rep(CarsonSB$T1[4], n[4])),
