Calculate total utilities for all profiles in the choice set to
be evaluated and assume that every individual deterministically chooses the
profile with maximum utility. Allocate 100% choice probability to this profile
and 0% percent to all other profiles. Note that in applied settings the
is not that deterministic as it may appear becaues estimated partworths
>b) The Bradley Terry-Luce model
Divide the total utility of profile i by the sum of all total utilities in
the choice set to estimate an indivual's choice probability for profile i.
>c) The Logit model
Similar to the BTL model but take exp(total utility of profile i) and
divide by the
sum of all exp(utility) in the choice set to estimate an indivual's choice
probability for profile i.
