Estimating individual rates of discount: A meta-analysis

M. Percoco, P. Nijkamp

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


In this article, we present the results from a meta-analysis conducted over 44 experimental and field studies, which report individual discount rate estimates. We find in our research that the experimental design of a study has a decisive impact on these estimates, and conclude that meta-analysis, in the case of individual discount rates, has a low transfer value. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
