Inner View of Spatial Autoregression Residuals with LADS and Join-Count Statistics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Spatial autocorrelation is a reality but also a requirement to carry out spatial interpolation and spatial autoregressive modeling. Conventional statistics must, then, be reformulated to properly account for spatial correlation and spatial heterogeneity within georeferenced data. For instance, if autoregressive residuals reveal a medium-strong spatial autocorrelation then any omitted variable, within the initial regression model, can be significant. Hence, LADS and join-count statistics are reviewed here as a way to test this missing explanatory variables through its spatial binary residuals because spatial autocorrelation error can be defined as a specification error artifact for spatial modeling.
