The paper estimates the preference for elder policy by using a large scale conjoint survey experiment. While the conjoint survey design allows us to evaluate multiple policy topics, the main interest is mixed elderly care. Methodologically, the paper proposes a parallel design for additional attributes, which allows us to identify the AMCE, conditional on the respondent's policy concern. Our results consistently show positive support for mixed elderly care.
