We present a novel specification of a dynamic multinomial ordered choice model, where the latent variable is a function of strictly stationary exogenous variables and lags of the choice variable. We prove that such a model with weakly dependent errors will have a strictly stationary solution which is L-2 near epoch dependent. We also derive consistency and asymptotic normality of the maximum likelihood estimator for a probit specification of the model. We illustrate a possible application of…

Abstract The decisions to reduce, leave unchanged, or increase a choice variable (such as policy interest rates) are often characterized by abundant status quo outcomes that can be generated by
Modeling Ordered Choices: A Primer and Recent Developments
We survey the literature on models for ordered choices, including ordered logit and probit specifications. The contemporary form of the model is presented and analyzed in detail. The historical
Discrete Response Models
TLDR
It is shown how multiple choice models can, in fact, be viewed and treated as binary choice ones with an added dimension and the issue of selectivity in a “Heckit” approach is dealt with.
