Christopher Leggett, PhD

Director

Chris is an applied economist with extensive experience with survey design, statistical sampling methods, recreation choice models, and revealed/stated preference valuation studies. He has had leading roles in recreation surveys and count studies throughout the United States, including studies focused on recreation on the Appalachian Trail, at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, at Southern California and Texas Gulf Coast beaches, at coastal parks in the San Francisco Bay area, and at numerous inland lakes and rivers. His experience with survey methods includes telephone surveys using dual-frame cell/landline samples, mail surveys using address-based sampling, in-person surveys, and repeat-contact panels.

Over the course of nearly two decades of consulting, Chris has gained substantial experience with applied statistics, and he frequently consults on projects that require complex sampling designs, survey weights, or econometric analyses. He has also lectured in statistics as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

In his free time, Chris enjoys cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and following soccer (he’s a Liverpool fan). He also enjoys geology and worked for two years as a field geologist after college before returning to graduate school to study economics.
