# Mixed Logit with Repeated Choices: Households' Choices of Appliance Efficiency Level

@article{Revelt1998MixedLW, title={Mixed Logit with Repeated Choices: Households' Choices of Appliance Efficiency Level}, author={David Revelt and Kenneth E. Train}, journal={Review of Economics and Statistics}, year={1998}, volume={80}, pages={647-657} }

Mixed logit models, also called random-parameters or error-components logit, are a generalization of standard logit that do not exhibit the restrictive independence from irrelevant alternatives property and explicitly account for correlations in unobserved utility over repeated choices by each customer. Mixed logits are estimated for households' choices of appliances under utility-sponsored programs that offer rebates or loans on high-efficiency appliances.

Random Coefficient Models for Stated Preference Surveys

Abstract This paper combines the use of random coefficient discrete choice models that allow for correlated errors in the form of unobserved preference heterogeneity with an investigation of the…

Estimating Mixed Logit Models with Large Choice Sets 1

- Economics, Computer Science
- 2013

An expectation-maximization algorithm is developed to estimate a latent class, mixed logit model with a sample of alternatives and the empirical results quantify the tradeoff between model run-time and the efficiency/precision of welfare estimates associated with samples of different sizes.

On Locally Optimal Criterion for a Logit Model with Random Parameters

- Economics
- 2013

Mixed logit is a highly flexible model that can approximate any random utility model. In this paper, two kinds of mixed multinomial logit models were considered. The main aim was to introduce a…

The Confounding Effects of Consumer Heterogeneity on Model-Based Inference of Attribute Non-Attendance

- Economics
- 2012

Several empirical studies conclude that a majority of economic agents ignore some of observed product attributes when choosing among discrete alternatives. Many of these ndings are based on latent…

Parameters Heterogeneity in a Model of Labour Supply: Exploring the Performance of Mixed Logit

Using Random Parameters to Account for Heterogeneous Preferences in Contingent Valuation of Public Open Space

- Economics

To test for preference heterogeneity in dichotomous choice contingent valuation responses, a random parameter logit (RPL) specification is used in this analysis. The RPL model confirms heterogeneity…

Non-linear mixed logit

We develop an extension of the familiar linear mixed logit model to allow for the direct estimation of parametric non-linear functions defined over structural parameters. Classic applications include…

Consumer Attitudes and Voluntary Rate Schedules for Public Utilities

Attitudes enter as latent explanatory variables in a model of consumers' choice among optional rate schedules offered by a public utility. A consistent estimator of the choice model is described that…

We estimate random-parameter logit models of anglers' choices of fishing sites. The models generalize logit by allowing coefficients to vary randomly over anglers rather than being fixed. The models…
