This is often referred to as the lower off-diagonal matrix. 5 Correlation Within the choice modeling literature, much discussion relates to the covariances that exist between random variables of the ﬁtted models. As described previously, the sign of a covariance statistic may be used to indicate the direction of relationship between two 34 Applied Choice Analysis random variables, however, the magnitude of the statistic is not generally informative as to the strength of relationship that may exist between the two random variables.
Two types of choice data have emerged as the primary sources of choice response. These are known as revealed preference (RP) and stated preference (SP) data. RP data refer to situations where the choice is actually made in real market situations; in contrast, SP data refer to situations where a choice is made by considering hypothetical 6 4. 5. 6. 7. Applied Choice Analysis situations (which are typically the same alternatives in the RP data set, but are described by different levels of the same attributes to those observed in actual markets as well as additional attributes not in the data collected from actual markets).
1. Thus, by ignoring the other random variables, the MPDFs are calculated as if the problem we are examining is univariate. ” The reference to “unconditional” is derived from the fact that the MPDF for one random variable is not conditional on a speciﬁc value being observed for any other random variable being considered. In effect, the MPDF is calculated irrespective of what values are observed for all other random variables. It is often useful to consider the conditional probability density function (CPDF).
