Description of the contract

Background The subjective wellbeing approach has recently developed as a way of estimating the economic value of non-market goods such as heritage and culture. This approach calculates monetary amounts by assessing how a good or service affects individuals’ sense of wellbeing and computes the monetary equivalent of this impact. However there appears to date to have been very limited actual application of this approach to quantifying the benefits of heritage. Hence this invitation to tender (ITT) seeks to commission such a study.
