PyLogit is a Python package for performing maximum likelihood estimation of conditional logit models and similar discrete choice models.
- It supports
- Conditional Logit (Type) Models
- Multinomial Logit Models
- Multinomial Asymmetric Models
- Multinomial Clog-log Model
- Multinomial Scobit Model
- Multinomial Uneven Logit Model
- Multinomial Asymmetric Logit Model
- Nested Logit Models
- Mixed Logit Models (with Normal mixing distributions)
- It supports datasets where the choice set differs across observations
- It supports model specifications where the coefficient for a given variable may be
- completely alternative-specific
(i.e. one coefficient per alternative, subject to identification of the coefficients),
(i.e. one coefficient per subset of alternatives, where each alternative belongs to only one subset, and there are more than 1 but less than J subsets, where J is the maximum number of available alternatives in the dataset),
- completely generic
(i.e. one coefficient across all alternatives).
Available from PyPi:
pip install pylogit
Available through Anaconda:
conda install -c conda-forge pylogit
