|Abstract:||The purpose of this paper is to use the life satisfaction approach to value ecosystem diversity in the South East Queensland bioregion. A respondent’s self-reported life satisfaction is a function of a number of socio-economic and demographic characteristics (including income) and is hypothesised to be a product of the degree of ecosystem diversity in an individual's local area. Results indicate that high levels of ecosystem diversity, ceteris paribus, increase self-reported life satisfaction. Specifically, we find that a one-unit improvement in ecosystem diversity is equivalent (in life satisfaction terms) to an increase in household income per annum of approximately AUD $11,000.||URL:||http://www.griffith.edu.au/business-government/asia-pacific-centre-for-sustainable-enterprise/publications/working-paper-series/issue-3||ISBN:||ISSN 1839-6356||Keywords:||Location -- QLD; Satisfaction -- Life||Research collection:||Technical working papers and reports
