It has been over 30 years since Tversky's elimination by aspects (EBA) model was introduced. Despite the potential importance of this elegant model, no method for parameter estimation has emerged. In this paper we prove that simple differences in observed choice probabilities across choice sets are linearly related to the parameters in the EBA model. Once the appropriate probability differences are calculated it is then easy to use widely available least-squares software to estimate the EBA parameters. This p…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
