### What does scale heterogeneity mean in the generalized multinomial logit models?

I have learned that one property of multinomial logit models or the data used to build these models is scale heterogeneity. What does Scale Heterogeneity mean in the sphere of multinomial logit models?...

### How scale heterogeneity can be a source of correlation?

First off, I'd like to put this clearly that I am new to logit models and I am trying to learn their basics. So far, I have understood that in the sphere of multinomial logit models and MXL, there are ...

### When and why should psychologists use ordered probit models rather than the general linear model?

Psychologists often use the general linear model with ordinal independent/dependent variables (i.e. Likert scales to measure 'levels' of a psychological trait. For example, assigning numbers to the ...

### Heckman selection model: probit selection & logit outcome

I have a situation where I think I need to use a Heckman selection model to correct for endogeneity. I am interested in studying the effect of firm's market entry mode on its performance. Factors that ...

### Obtaining posterior outcome probabilities Multinomial Probit given posterior parameter estimates

I'm trying to compute the individual posterior probabilities from my estimated multinomial probit model. I have obtained the latent utilities as well as the posterior parameters for beta and sigma for ...

### Conditional Logistic Regression in R

As my first question addressing this matter was incomplete and unclear, I made another attempt with an improved outline. I am currently working on a project in which I have a data-set of the following ...

### Predicted Probabilities in Multinomial Probit Model

I am trying to compute predicted probabilities from a multinomial probit model. Researching the internet has given me two ways how this can be done. The first one is basically just applying the ...

### Poisson or Multinomial Logistic Regression (or something else)?

There seems to be a lot of discussion about this on CV but none quite answer my question. I have a variable y which represents number of adverse events occurring ...

### Estimation of Demand and Substitution in Case of Multinomial Logit Model

In MNL model, given the different alternative choices, we estimate the probability of choice across different options. E.g. using the fishing data, we can use the following calculations to estimate ...

### What is an intuitive way to understand an ROC curve for a multinomial classifier?

When drawing an ROC curve for a binary classifier, we vary, say the probability threshold of one class vs the other and get the curve. However I'm confused what this means in a multinomial case where ...

### How to use multinomial probit coefficients to predict?

I fitted a multinomial probit model with one independent categorical variable Y (levels 1,2,3) and two explanatory variables X1 and X2. Using mlogit package in R like this: ...

### Multivariate multinomial probit

I would like to jointly estimate 4 variables. Two of them are categorical and the two others are binary. So I thought about a "multivariate multinomial probit model", but did not find much. What ...

### Is a win-lose model for three Presidential primary candidates appropriate? Multinomial Logit model?

I have a dataset where each record represents a collection of variables for each of the counties in New York. Five variables represent the number of tweets in that geographic area for each candidate ...

### Discrete choice models; estimating probability of new alternatives

Let's say the set of alternatives are $j=1,2,...J$, where $X_i$ is the vector of subject-specific attributes for subject $i$, and $Z_{ij}$ is the vector of alternative-specific attributes for ...

### Deciding between Probit and Multi-nominal Probit if one of three categories is very unlikely? Proving randomness of that category?

I have a choice variable, which is either A or B or C. But apparently C is hardly chosen. And for me it seems like it more "happens to be chosen". I want to estimate which some continuous covariates, ...

### Solution verification - calculation of second derivatives of multinomial probit log-likelihood function

The initial function of log-likelihood of multinomial probit model with $J$ alternatives: \$ ln \ell=\sum_{i=1}^N\sum_{j=1}^{J-1} y_{ij} \cdot ln \Phi(\sum_{k=1}^Kx_{ik}\beta_{kj})+ ({n_i-\sum_{j=1}^{...
