Discrete Choice Analysis presents these results in such a way that they are fully accessible to the range of students and professionals who are involved in modelling demand and consumer behavior in general or specifically in transportation - whether from the point of view of the design of transit systems, urban and transport economics, public policy, operations research, or systems management and planning.

The methods of discrete choice analysis and their applications in the modelling of transportation systems constitute a comparatively new field that has largely evolved over the past 15 years. Since its inception, however, the field has developed rapidly, and this is the first text and reference work to cover the material systematically, bringing together the scattered and often inaccessible results for graduate students and professionals. Discrete Choice Analysis presents these results in such a way that they are fully accessible to the range of students and professionals who are involved in modelling demand and consumer behavior in general or specifically in transportation - whether from the point of view of the design of transit systems, urban and transport economics, public policy, operations research, or systems management and planning. The introductory chapter presents the background of discrete choice analysis and context of transportation demand forecasting. Subsequent chapters cover, among other topics, the theories of individual choice behavior, binary and multinomial choice models, aggregate forecasting techniques, estimation methods, tests used in the process of model development, sampling theory, the nested-logit model, and systems of models.

Discrete Choice Analysis is ninth in the MIT Press Series in Transportation Studies, edited by Marvin Manheim.

Hard to read, but a classic and an excellent reference for DCA. I have used DCA many times in my research, and it helps to have this definitive guide at my fingertips.
Dammy
Has very detailed contents. So no need to worry if you are not that good at Math. It has a few examples about how to interpret your model outputs. It was a great help for my homework when I was taking a discrete choice modeling class. Actually, it was the designated text book we used for that class.
Oso
Very good book by the top scientist in the field of transport demand modeling. Useful to have it in the library if you are a professional.
Enila
I like the chapters 4,5 and10. They are very usefuls for analizing surveys with qualitative answers questions. Also see interesting chapter 3 on theories of individual choice behavior.
Cordalas
Brilliant book, would never have completed my msc without it. Detailed, yet succinct and practical.

Two knowledgable authors gave in-depth treatments on the subject of DCM. The math is fairly easy to follow in most places. The biggest strength is a nice combination of theoretical and practical issues. The readers however should be benefitted from a new edition, which should include, among other things, extended exposures on ordered responses and grouped/aggregated data analyses with DCM. An introduction to the existing software and relevant issues should also be a plus.
