Discrete Choice Experiments: Sammenligning af estimeringsmetoder i Stata

English title: Discrete Choice Experiments: Comparing alternative estimation procedures in Stata. The paper was handed in Friday 3 November 2006, and the grade was published on 8 December 2006: Passed, with a good grade!

Below you will find links to the paper itself (in pdf format), programming code used to carry out the analysis and output from the analysis (we are using Stata 9, but code and output is ordinary ASCII text, so you should be able to read it with any text editor). The paper itself is written in Danish.

Alas, we are not able to supply you with the data set used in the analysis, since it is not ours to give away. The same goes for the unpublished Stata program -wtp-, which is written by Arne R. Hole and used in our analysis. Anyone legitimately interested in the analysis may obtain a copy by contacting us. Data was kindly provided by our supervisor, Ass. Professor Mickael Bech, and it stems from a study carried out in connection with another master thesis.

You can download the following files:

Alternative method, if you have Stata installed on your computer:

If you have the statistical software package Stata installed on your computer, you can obtain the above mentioned files in a much easier manner. Just write the following three lines of code in Stata’s Command Prompt (one at a time):

. net from
. net describe seminar
. net get seminar

Please write each line exactly as it is spelled out above (except, without the prefixed period. That’s just Stata convention for showing commands in output). All files will be downloaded to Stata’s current working directory, so please be sure to change the directory, if you wish to download the files to another location on your computer’s hard drive (-pwd- will show you Stata’s current working directory, which you can then change using -cd-).

Update regarding the -wtp- Stata program

The author, Arne R. Hole, has published the -wtp- program on SSC. To download the program from within Stata, issue the following commands in Stata’s command prompt:

. ssc describe wtp   /* list the wtp package        */
. ssc install wtp    /* install the wtp program     */
. help wtp           /* read program documentation  */
