Abstract

The paper develops a theoretical foundation for using count data models in travel cost analysis. Two micro models are developed: a restricted choice model and a repeated discrete choice model. We show that both models lead to identical welfare measures.

Keywords: count data, repeat discrete choice, travel cost analysis, welfare analysis

JEL Classification: C25, Q26
