# Choice Set

A choice set is one scenario, also known as a treatment, provided for evaluation by respondents in a choice experiment. Responses are collected and used to create a choice model. Respondents are usually provided with a series of differing choice sets for evaluation.

The choice set is generated from an experimental design and usually involves two or more alternatives being presented together.

### Famous quotes containing the words set and/or choice:

The sun set; but set not his hope:
Stars rose; his faith was earlier up:
Fixed on the enormous galaxy,
Deeper and older seemed his eye:
And matched his sufferance sublime
The taciturnity of time.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
