The value of leisure time of weekends and long holidays: The multiple discrete–continuous extreme value (MDCEV) choice model with triple constraints

Journal of Choice Modelling

Accepted: 18 July 2020

  • Econometric model of identifying the value of leisure time of weekends and long holidays is proposed.

  • Endogenous time allocation and the substitution effect between weekends and long holidays are analyzed.

  • Demand prediction and welfare analysis are constructed using a system of nonlinear equations using the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker condition.

  • Empirical results suggest a significantly large difference in the value of leisure time between weekends and long holidays.
