Estimating the Effect of the Chesapeake Bay Program on Application Rates for Enrollment in the Environmental Quality Incentive Program: A Case Study of Pennsylvania AgEcon
Wright, Christopher.
This paper is an evaluation of the Chesapeake Bay Program’'s (CBP) effect on farmers’' willingness to participate in USDA agricultural conservation programs. Willingness to participate is demonstrated by submission of an application for enrollment in a conservation program. The estimation method is propensity score matching. Matching is one method which can be used to estimate treatment effects using observational studies when a control group is not available for purposes of comparing outcomes with treatment and without treatment.

The Impact of the Chesapeake Bay Program on Pennsylvania Application Rates for the Environmental Quality Incentive Program AgEcon
Wright, Christopher.
This paper presents an application of matching on propensity score to evaluate the impact of the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) on farmers' willingness to participate in the United States Department of Agriculture Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP). One goal of the CBP is to reduce agricultural nutrient loadings to Chesapeake Bay. Achievement of this goal will require increased farm adoption of conservation practices to limit and reduce the levels of residual nutrients the bay. One expectation of this investigation is that the CBP's agricultural related research and educational outreach programs directed to the farm community has a positive effect on farmers' willingness to enroll in conservation programs. Furthermore, the CBP funding to...

Using Matching Estimators to Evaluate the Effect of Unit-Based Pricing on Municipal Solid Waste Disposal AgEcon
Wright, Christopher; Halstead, John M..
The delivery of municipal services for the collection, transfer, and disposal of household solid waste is often provided by local governmental units; typically at the town or city level. Unit-based pricing, also known as pay-as-you-throw (PAYT), is a residential solid waste collection program requiring households to pay a fee per bag of trash disposed. Unit-based pricing represents a significant departure from the historical practice of financing solid waste service from property tax revenues in which the marginal cost to a household for disposing solid waste is effectively zero. Local governments are motivated to adopt unit-based pricing for the purpose of creating a financial incentive for households to reduce the quantity of solid waste disposed and...
