Dear Arne, the main concern about the conditional logit model is its assumption of independence from irrelevant alternatives (IIA). This assumption implies that the probability ratio of individuals choosing between two alternatives does not depend on the availability or attributes of the other alternatives. I have 4 alternatives for each choice set, so it's important to me to surmount the IIA, and it's better using mixlogit than asclogit, isn't it? Thank you, elisabetta 2012/11/27 Arne Risa Hole <arnehole@gmail.com>: > You are welcome. -mixlogit- implements the same model as -asclogit- > but with random coefficients.
