Abstract
This study reports the results of a contingent valuation of road traffic noise in Quito, Ecuador. Two approaches were evaluated: an ordered probit econometric model and a committee of artificial neural networks. The input variables were obtained through a social survey that assess the respondent?s noise perception and socio economic status as well as the modelled noise exposure level. A comparison indicates that the ANN model can predict the willingness to pay to reduce road noise annoyance with 85.7% better accuracy than the econometric model. The proposed approach reaches an adequate generalisation level, becoming a tool for determining the cost of transportation noise in a policy-making context.
