The Identification and Economic Content of Ordered Choice Models with Stochastic Thresholds

No 2940, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)
This paper extends the widely used ordered choice model by introducing stochastic thresholds and interval-specific outcomes. The model can be interpreted as a generalization of the GAFT (MPH) framework for discrete duration data that jointly models durations and outcomes associated with different stopping times. We establish conditions for nonparametric identification. We interpret the ordered choice model as a special case of a general discrete choice model and as a special case of a dynamic discrete choice model.
