A growing number of empirical studies involve the assessment
of influences on a choice amongst ordered discrete alternatives.
Ordered logit and probit models are well known, including
extensions to accommodate random ...
Australian governments are amongst the leading advocates
of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) as a public

Choice analysts increasingly use a mix of revealed
preference and stated choice data paradigms to identify
preferences of samples of individuals that are used to infer
behavioural response and willingness to pay for ...
Analysts are increasingly making use of pivot style Stated
Choice (SC) data in the estimation of choice models. These
datasets often contain a reference alternative whose
attributes remain invariant across replications ...
