Abstract: Ranking data provide important additional information related to valuation because of the implied preference sequence among all alternatives, rather than just the top choice preference. This additional information from a preference ranking can be exploited to achieve a certain desired precision in choice model estimation with a much smaller sample size, making ranked data surveys much more cost-effective than first-choice surveys. In this paper, we propose a spatial rank-ordered probit (SROP) model that accommodates both spatial lag effects as well as spatial drift effects. To our knowledge, this is the first such formulation and application of an SROP model in the econometric and transportation literature. An application of the proposed model is demonstrated in a travel mode choice ranking experiment among seven alternatives, including autonomous vehicle (AV) private ride-hailing and AV pooled ride-hailing.
