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
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
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
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
In this note we investigate the empirical differences between the Random Utility model with fixed coefficients (Conditional Logit), and the Random Utility model with random coefficients (Mixed

Using Random Parameters to Account for Heterogeneous Preferences in Contingent Valuation of Public Open Space
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
Mixed Logit Analysis of Carrier Market Share with Stated-preference Data
Stated-preference survey techniques have become established as a means to elicit consumer preferences, particularly when a product is new or only recently exposed to competitive pressure. This

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
Recreation Demand Models with Taste Differences Over People
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
Using stated response choice data to enrich revealed preference discrete choice models
There is growing interest in exploring the view that both revealed preference (RP) and stated preference (SP) data have useful information and that their integration will enrich the overall
Approximation and Simulation of the Multinomial Probit Model : An Analysis of Covariance Matrix Estimation
The multinomial probit (MNP) model is a primary application for combining simulation with estimation. Indeed, McFadden (1989) featured the MNP model in his seminal paper. As random utility model, the
A Method of Simulated Moments for Estimation of Discrete Response Models Without Numerical Integration
This paper proposes a simple modification of a conventional generalized method of moments estimator for a discrete response model, replacing response probabilities that require numerical integration
