**The source adds the following information:
"This study provides an assessment of the value of GLAMs using cost-benefit analysis (CBA) within an economic welfare framework. It takes a Total Economic Value (TEV) approach, which measures the economic benefits accruing not just to direct beneficiaries such as GLAMs visitors, but to “non-users”— people who value GLAMs’ existence even if they have not recently visited one.

While assessing the costs of maintaining and operating GLAMs is relatively simple, quantifying the benefits is more difficult, requiring a range of economic techniques in line with the diversity of activities GLAMs undertake. These include a calculation of their value as visitor attractions — computed from what visitors actually pay to access GLAMs, but also an estimation of what visitors 'would have been prepared to pay' over and above the ticket price (known as the “consumer surplus”).

To capture the non-use and broader social value of GLAMs, we undertook a national survey of 2,045 Canadian residents. 'Willingness to pay' questions were incorporated in this survey, and quotas were imposed by sex, age, education, language (English/French), and province and territory of residence to ensure a representative sample of the Canadian population".
