内容提要:

This study uses the hedonic property valuation method to quantify the willingness-to-pay of residents in the Dan River region near the border of Virginia and North Carolina, for multiple dimensions of an improved food environment — availability, accessibility, and acceptability of food. Our findings indicate that, overall, the marginal implicit price for a small improvement in food environment, for example, introducing a new fast casual restaurant or a new grocery store in a given neighborhood, or reducing the average traveling distance to grocery stores, or improving healthy food offerings in local food outlets, is either null or negative for residents in this region.
