Markov Chain Monte Carlo Procedure to Generate Revealed Preference Consistent Datasets

Author

Listed:
  • Thomas Demuynck

Abstract

This paper presents a Markov-Chain-Monte-Carlo (MCMC) procedure to sample uniformly from the collection of datasets that satisfy some revealed preference test. The MCMC combines a Gibbs-sampler with a simple hit and run step. It is shown that the MCMC has the uniform distribution as its unique invariant distribution and that it converges to this distribution at an exponential rate.
