A Latent Class Multiple Constraint Multiple Discrete-Continuous Extreme Value Model of Time Use and Goods Consumption

The aim of this proposal is to develop a microeconomic time-use framework that (a) accommodates technological relationships between time allocated to activities and goods consumption, and (b) proposed a discrete distribution for the response coefficients. This latent class model will be able to identify different segments of the population, each one of them with different effects of the exogenous variables on time allocation, activity participation, and goods consumption. This endogenous segmentation will be compared in a comprehensive fashion with the typical segmented estimation of microeconomic time use models (of the type discussed in the first paragraph of this abstract) from a theoretical, conceptual, and empirical data fit standpoint. The empirical analysis will be pursued using a 2012 Dutch data set on weekly time use and good expenditure.
