Discrete Choice Methods with Simulation
by Kenneth Train
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2003
Number of pages: 400
Simulation methods have unshackled discrete choice analysis, breaking down the computational barriers to use of plausible, interpretable models. Kenneth Train provides an excellent road map for both econometric specialists and practitioners through this comprehensive, readable treatment that pulls together the research literature and provides many new and useful results.
