# RE: st: calculate probability for clogit

 From Patty_FARE_Guelph Apichaya To statalist Subject RE: st: calculate probability for clogit Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 01:34:08 +0000

```Hi,

I try to use -asclogit- but it has to have more than 2 alternatives in 1 choice set, so I cannot use this command in my analysis.
For the choice design, I use SAS software to design the pair of alternative and combination of factors in order to balance and give the optimal sets. I use clogit to analyze my choices and I want to know how I calculate probability the people choose each alternative in choice set.

if I want to calculate personal factors, should I use -xtlogit- or which command it is appropriate?

Thanks
