Re: st: mlogit with alternative specific variables
I think what you should try to do is to respecify your -clogit- model
as an -stcox- model. The Cox proportional hazards event history model
is strongly related to the conditional logit model. If there are no
time varying covariates, choice of an alternative is indicated by a
time duration of 1, and non-choice is indicated as censured, the
pseudo-loglikelihood of the Cox model simplifies to the likelihood
function of the conditional logit model. Data structure is the same,
estimates and standard errors ditto. Once you've specified the
-clogit- model as -stcox-, the step to an event history model should
Examples using SPSS and SAS can be found at
