I know almost nothing about discrete choice experiments, so please
read the following comments with that in mind.

1. -asclogit-  might be a better choice than -clogit-, as it will more
easily include  person-level variables like gender, income, and sex.

2. Your setup does not identify the individual in any way. The
examples for -asclogit- and -clogit-  all use the individual as the
case or group variable. As "set" has only four levels, perhaps you can
include it as a person-level variable.

3. The examples in -asclogit- consider  alternatives based on one
attribute (factor).  You have three factors  and these generate 12 (=
3 x 2 x 2)  possible options, with 66  possible pairwise comparisons.
You selected 32 of these,  divided into four sets.  I'm curious--is
there  a reference for this experimental design?  Is the choice of
comparisons and construction of the sets  optimal or balanced in some

4. For predicted probabilities, use  the  -pr- option in -asclogit- .
