I do not have a Sawtooth specific question, but rather a general question on model estimation using HB: I would like to know how important the scaling of variables is in model estimation using HB? More precisely, for model estimation using Maximum Simulated Likelihood and optimization, it is recommended to scale the variables so that the parameter estimators are in similar orders of magnitude. For example, instead of using a linear price attribute with the values 50$, 100$, 150$, it is recommended to use 1, 2, 3 and to rescale the coefficients after estimation. However, it did not find any information about the importance of scaling when using HB. I suspect that scaling is not as important with HB as it is with optimisation.
Do you have any information on that topic?
