A Proportional Random Utility Approach to Qualitative Response Models
A new functional form of the response probability for a qualitative response model is proposed. The new model is flexible enough to avoid the constraint of independence from irrelevant alternatives, which is perceived as a weakness of the multinomial logit model in some applications. It is computationally simpler than the multinomial probit model and is promising for analyzing problems with a moderate number of alternatives.
