Identities for maximum, minimum, and maxmin random utility models

Abstract: We generalize Roy’s identity for discrete choice models, focusing on the worst choices. To do so, we derive a relation between the expected minimum utility and the worst choice probabilities for additive random utility models. We extend this relationship to maxmin random utility models, applying this framework to model ambiguity in a discrete choice setting.
