Estimation of multinomial logit models in R : The mlogit Package

  title={Estimation of multinomial logit models in R : The mlogit Package},
  author={Yves Croissant},
mlogit is a package for R which enables the estimation of the multinomial logit models with individual and/or alternative specific variables. The main extensions of the basic multinomial model (heteroscedastic, nested and random parameter models) are implemented.

Multinomial Logit Models with Individual Heterogeneity in R : The gmnl Package
gmnl is a package for R, which allows to estimate multinomial logit models with unobserved heterogeneity across individuals for cross-sectional and panel data. The models supported by gmnl are MNL,
Discrete Choice Models with Random Parameters in R: The Rchoice Package
Rchoice is a package in R for estimating models with individual heterogeneity for both cross-sectional and panel (longitudinal) data. In particular, the package allows binary, ordinal and count
A Comparison of Model Selection Procedures for Latent Class Discrete Choice Models
The use of the latent class model (LCM) is a popular way of modelling discrete choices. It is a good alternative to the traditional multinomial logit model (MNL), but the larger number of parameters

In political science, data with heterogeneous units are used in many studies, such as those involving legislative proposals in different policy areas, electoral choices by different types of voters,
Statistical models for social network dynamics
A Mahalanobis distance based, Monte Carlo goodness of fit test that can depend on arbitrary features of the observed network data and covariates is proposed and a modified model distance (MMD) estimator is devised that can help researchers to choose among a set of model elaborations.
Conjugate generalized linear mixed models with applications
This thesis focuses on the development of conjugate generalized linear mixed models (CGLMMs), which is a computationally efficient modelling framework for longitudinal and multilevel data where the likelihood can be expressed in closedform.
Penalized Estimation of Sparse Directed Acyclic Graphs From Categorical Data Under Intervention
A blockwise coordinate descent algorithm is developed to solve the penalized likelihood problem subject to the acyclicity constraint of a DAG and shows very competitive performance compared to existing methods.
Effect of analytical units and aggregation rules on mode choice models
The quality of mode choice prediction is essential on the way to a resource efficient transport system. Commonly, mode choice is modelled on the trip or tour level, but a systematic evaluation of the

This paper proposes a novel application of the multinomial logit (MNL) model using Cropland Data Layer and field-level boundaries to estimate crop transition probabilities, which are used to generate
Income-leisure preferences in New Zealand: 1988-2013
This paper reports estimates for discrete choice labour supply models for New Zealand wage and salary earners for four periods: 1988/89-1992/93, 1993/94-1997/98, 2000/01-2007/08, and 2008/09-2012/13.


Structural Choice Analysis with Nested Logit Models
This paper compares two major variants of the nested logit model and finds that one of them (called random utility maximization nestedlogit, RUMNL) is preferable in most situations.
Estimating “tree” logit models
Alternative computational approaches to inference in the multinomial probit model
This research compares several approaches to inference in the multinomial probit model, based on Monte-Carlo results for a seven choice model, and finds that the Gibbs sampling-data augmentation algorithm appears to have a slight overall edge.
