Yesterday a client ask me about the meaning of zero-centered diffs. I was able to explain what they mean, but the client wanted to know exactly how these utilities are calculated. I told him, I will give him the formula in the upcoming days. I tried to calculate the ZC-Diffs from the part-worths of a HB/CBC estimation of a recent study, but was not able to get the right values for the ZC-Diffs. I already read the article from Sawtooth Solutions, 1999, Issue 10 and the explanation in die SSI Web Manual.
Can anybody help me with this issue, please? I would really appreciate it!
Thank you in advance,
