Individual-Level Carryover-Parameters in Reference-Price Models

In reference-price models, so-called carryover-parameters capture consumers’ price memory for internal reference-price formation. Previous literature has ignored consumer heterogeneity for these parameters, while consumer research acknowledges individual differences in consumer’s ability to remember prices. We propose a model with individual-level carryover-parameters in reference-price formation to capture more realistic choice behavior.
