STICERD Work in Progress Seminars

Generalised Ordered Choice Models: Simulations and Empirical Example

Will Matchem (London School of Economics)

Friday 08 March 2019 13:00 - 14:00

Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

When dealing with multiple discrete variables, it is common to run separate ordered choice models, which imposes a particular structure on the latent variable space. In this paper we generalise this structure, which allows thresholds to depend upon all dependent variables considered. First, we state the econometric model and discuss identification and estimation. Then, we present simulations, including one on the estimation of static games. Finally, we discuss the application of the new method to two applied papers. The first paper is Malmendier and Nagel's study of the relationship between experienced stock returns and financial risk taking. The second is Besley and Persson's paper, "The Logic of Political Violence".

STICERD Work in Progress seminars are held on Fridays in term time at 13:00-14:00, ONLINE, unless specified otherwise.

Seminar organisers: Philip Barteska and Alix Bonargent
