A random-effects panel logit model is proposed, in which the unmeasured attributes of an individual are represented by a discrete-valued random variable, the distribution of which is binomial with a known number of support points. The maximum-likelihood estimator of the unknown parameters of the model are derived, and the performance of the ML estimators is investigated in a series of Monte-Carlo experiments. Several further extensions of the framework are also suggested, including application to discrete event-history data.
