CIVE637 Discrete Choice Modelling in Transportation
In this course, the students will gain conceptual understanding of the most common econometric models employed in the fields of transportation, economics, sociology and psychology. The emphasis is on training graduate students to develop econometric models from scratch as opposed to using "black box" software. The first part of the class provides training in the data assembly process, descriptive analysis and multivariate regression. The second part of the course focuses exclusively on econometric models to including binary logit/probit models, multinomial logit/probit model, ordered logit/probit model. The course exclusively employs maximum likelihood approach of model estimation. Finally, an introduction to more advanced models employed in research is provided.
