Previous studies estimating the willingness-to-pay for noise abatement have attempted to describe noise abatement textually. This study examines whether respondents to such surveys understand the information provided. A text-based questionnaire was presented to respondents and a series of ancillary questions were asked to test the respondents’ understanding. Analysis suggests that the majority of respondents did not fully understand the information provided in the questionnaire.
