However, by substituting for Pr([y.sub.it] = 1|[x.sub.it], [[alpha].sub.i]) and Pr([y.sub.it] = 0|[x.sub.it], [[alpha].sub.i]) using the relative frequencies of intentions to watch (or not) any of the games live on TV, we are able to approximate the discrete change in the probability of TV viewership at each level of hwin, that is, the predictive marginal probability. The predicted probability is then calculated by subtracting the predictive marginal probability from each hwin-specific portion of TV viewership.
It allows the computation of the marginal probability of a node (component or event) by taking into account the interactions between the nodes of the network.
