6
Maximum Likelihood Estimation What is the probability of observing three observations: yiyi xixi 115 120 05

Logit model PDF: CDF

10
Other Models Multinomial –Influence of individuals attribute on choice of shop. –Influence of product attributes on choice of product (choice experiments, conjoint analysis) –Multinomial logit, conditional logit, multinomial probit. Ordered choice –Strongly disagree, disagree neutral etc. –Ordered probit/logit. Count data –Number of trips to the supermarket. –Poisson regression.

11
Limited Dependent Variables Tobit –Deals with the problem of censoring at zero. –Subsistence farmers sales on the market. –OLS is biassed Sample selection –Average earnings of women. –Heckman procedure equation 1: probit to explain participation. equation 2: least squares wage equation including the inverse mills ratio.
