Measuring water market prices

Orion Sanders, Neal Hughes & Mihir Gupta
This report was prepared for the Department’s Water Division. This report compares different methods for analysing water market price data. The goal is to identify a preferred method (which could be employed by all public and private analysts) for producing accurate and robust estimates of historical and current water market prices, for both water allocations (temporary trade) and water entitlements (permanent trade). The report considers standard methods employed currently by analysts along with more sophisticated...
