These observations lead to four stylized facts of benefit transfer, which serve as the launching point for this volume: (1) benefit transfer is, and will continue to be, a common component of policy analysis worldwide, (2) consensus best practice guidelines for benefit transfer are elusive but needed, (3) despite numerous recent advances in benefit transfer methods, additional work is needed to ensure validity and accuracy, and (4) efforts are required to make accurate benefit transfer methods more broadly accessible to policy analysts.

They are always quantified in comparative terms, relative to a welldefined baseline, and reflect the welfare (or well-being) of individuals or groups. For individuals, benefits are generally measured as the maximum amount of other goods that the individual is willing to forego in order to obtain another good that is desired. This reflects the individual’s WTP. Although WTP is often denominated in money units, it can be expressed in any unit of exchange. Value may also be quantified in terms of willingness to accept (WTA), defined as the minimum amount that a person or group would be willing to accept in order to give up a specified quantity of a good that is already possessed.
