Berlin DCE Colloquium

Next Colloquium | Previous Colloquia | Admin  

Discrete Choice Experiments (DCE) are increasingly applied to measure preferences and derive the willingness to pay for non-market and public goods. DCEs are especially established in environmental and sustainability sciences and find application in thematic areas such as sustainable consumption, sustainable land use, water management and renewable energies. The Berlin DCE Colloquium aims to promote exchange between scientists who are concerned with this method and to establish a network. The colloquium takes place every two months. Besides the presentation of case studies, methodological developments as well as econometric methods, including syntax and software, are among the topics that will be considered. Also presentations about the design of future studies are welcome.

Researchers interested in presenting at the Berlin DCE Colloquium or being included in the mailing list are encouraged to contact Julian Sagebiel.   



Starting in 2019, the Colloquium will take place at TU Berlin
(Address: Straße des 17. Juni 145, 10623 Berlin, Room 414a; => directions [1]).

    Seminar: Introduction to DCE modelling in R! 
    R is a commonly used language and environment for statistical computing and graphics (www.r-project.org [2]). It is available as Free Software in source code form. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, as well as on Windows and MacOS. In this talk we motivated and introduced several R-scripts for generation of different discrete choice data sets. Afterwards, these data sets were used for estimation of basic discrete choice models (Multinomial Logit, Mixed Logit), allowing for possibility of presenting different simulation exercises. R-scripts used for the data generation and models’ estimation were discussed in detail. The talk included basics on R programming and function optimization.
