Modeling ordered choices: A primer
MetadataShow full item record
© William H. Greene and David A. Hensher 2010.It is increasingly common for analysts to seek out the opinions of individuals and organizations using attitudinal scales such as degree of satisfaction or importance attached to an issue. Examples include levels of obesity, seriousness of a health condition, attitudes towards service levels, opinions on products, voting intentions, and the degree of clarity of contracts. Ordered choice models provide a relevant methodology for capturing the sources of influence that explain the choice made amongst a set of ordered alternatives. The methods have evolved to a level of sophistication that can allow for heterogeneity in the threshold parameters, in the explanatory variables (through random parameters), and in the decomposition of the residual variance. This book brings together contributions in ordered choice modeling from a number of disciplines, synthesizing developments over the last fifty years, and suggests useful extensions to account for the wide range of sources of influence on choice.

Moral choice in an agency framework and related motivational typologies as impacted by personal and contextual factors for financial institutions in China.Woodbine, Gordon F. (2002)In this study an empirical investigation is conducted of the factors affecting moral choice, a necessary antecedent to moral behaviour (or action). The theoretical framework has drawn upon Rest's (1983, 1986) model of ...
Order of presentation of dimensions did not systematically bias utility weights from a discrete choice experimentNorman, Richard; Kemmler, G.; Viney, R.; Pickard, A.; Gamper, E.; Holzner, B.; Nerich, V.; King, M. (2016)Background: Discrete choice experiments (DCEs) are increasingly used to value aspects of health. An issue with their adoption is that results may be sensitive to the order in which dimensions of health are presented in ...
Is dimension order important when valuing health states using Discrete Choice Experiments including duration?Mulhern, B.; Norman, Richard; Lorgelly, P.; Lancsar, E.; Ratcliffe, J.; Brazier, J.; Viney, R. (2017)Background: Discrete choice experiments with duration (DCETTO) can be used to estimate utility values for preference-based measures, such as the EQ-5D-5L. For self-completion, the health dimensions are presented in a ...
