David Palma - Extending the Multiple Discrete Continuous (MDC) modelling framework to consider complementarity, substitution, and an unobserved budget

Date

There are many tools available for demand forecasting at the individual level: discrete choice models to forecast what is bought, and linear regression to forecast how much of it is bought. Multiple-Discrete-Continuous (MDC) models can forecast both what and how much is purchased simultaneously, but they have historically being limited by a lack of complementarity...

Romain Crastes dit Sourd & colleagues – Discrete choice analysis of health worker job preferences in Ethiopia: Separating attribute non-attendance from taste heterogeneity

Date

Our paper on analysing preferences and heuristics used by health workers in Ethiopia when choosing hypothetical alternative jobs has been accepted for publication in Health Economics (ABS3).
