Summary

This paper reports some preliminary results on a mixed logit random utility analysis
of conjoint data from consumers’ preferences for agricultural products. The data were
collected via a telematic sample representative of Italian households. The survey
instrument was implemented via a computer supported system. A multivariate normal
full correlation structure is imposed in the mixed logit estimation and the implications of
such a taste structure are examined.
