Fast estimation of multinomial (MNL) and mixed logit (MXL) models in R with “Preference” space or “Willingness-to-pay” (WTP) space utility parameterizations.

The latest version includes support for:

Note: MXL models assume uncorrelated heterogeneity covariances and are estimated using maximum simulated likelihood based on the algorithms in Kenneth Train’s book Discrete Choice Methods with Simulation, 2nd Edition (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2009).
