In this thesis, I develop approaches to explain individual outcomes. These approaches focus on accurately estimating and predicting individual responses: how do individuals react (e.g. with their purchase behavior) to changes in explanatory variables (e.g. price)? The approaches contribute to the literature by allowing for more realistic individual behavior, especially when the dataset contains little information per individual.
