Class imbalance, where there are great differences between the number of observations associated with particular discrete outcomes, is common within transportation and other fields. In the statistics literature, one explanation for class imbalance that has been hypothesized is an asymmetric (rather than the typically symmetric) choice probability function. Unfortunately, few relatively simple models exist for testing this hypothesis in transportation settings—settings that are inherently multinomial. Our paper fills this gap.
