This article describes how to create a table of parameter fits and their standard errors for a Choice Modeling - Experimental Design output.
The values are generally compared between designs created by different algorithms for the same specification, rather than assessed on an individual basis.
For the examples above, the Random design has higher standard errors and D-errors compared to the Complete enumeration design.
The parameter estimates from the logit model can generally be ignored and are non-zero because of randomness.
A Choice Model Experimental Design output
1. Select the Experimental Design output.
2. Select Anything > Advanced Analysis > Choice Modeling > Diagnostic > Experimental Design > Parameter Standard Errors of Design.
As an alternative:
From the Choice Modeling Experimental Design dialog Object Inspector, select DIAGNOSTICS > Parameters Standard Errors of Design.
Random responses are created for 300 respondents for the experimental design and the resulting data is fit with a multinomial logit model. The D-error is also calculated. If priors were supplied when creating the design, they will be used in generating the responses and hence be reflected in the standard errors (even if the design algorithm did not use the priors). D-error also accounts for priors if supplied.
