Hi guys, i need your help. I would like to analyze 3 different social vulnerability indices. These are spatial indices that cover the entire Italy for 1991, 2001 and 2011 years. I would like to know if there is a significative spatial clusters for the 3 indices. What kind of Statistical analysis can i apply?! Thanks

62nd Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International, November 11-14, 2015

Conference and call for papers!

With the increased collection and the diffusion of geo-located spatial data, spatial econometrics has become a pervasive topic in many disciplines. This special session aims at bringing together researchers participating at the NARSC meeting with different substantive research focuses, but that share a common interest in spatial econometric methods and applications. Both theoretical and applied papers will find place in this special session.
If you are interested to contribute with a paper to this Special Session, please follow the usual abstract submission procedure at and then send the ID of the submitted paper to:

The research group LEDi, Laboratoire d'Economie de Dijon, is organizing the Eighth Seminar of Spatial Econometrics in honor of Doctor J.H.P. Paelinck, in Dijon (France). The conference aims to provide a forum for debate between young and consolidated researchers and it is open to both theoretical and applied papers which deal explicitly with questions of spatial modelling. It will be of special interest those contributions within the scope of
“Specification searches in spatial econometrics: theory and empirical issues”
The seminar is structured on a series of invited lectures around which four open sessions will be held dedicated to the contributions received and selected by the conference Scientific Committee.

An excellent introduction to ggplot2 package for high-level graphics in R. Once you have a good grounding of ggplot2, it will be really easy to apply it to spatial analysis. A worthwhile reading.

Where can I find free GIS data?

In a perfect world, you’d be able to find all the free GIS data you need in a single website. Of course, it would have to be free, downloadable from an authoritative source. But well, you know the drill. The world’s not perfect, life’s not fair.

So that’s why we’ve put together this list to turbo-charge your search for free GIS data. We provide a list of 10 free, downloadable global GIS datasets from highly reputable sources.

A spatial autoregressive model with a nonlinear transformation of the dependent variable

- Xingbai Xu, Lung-fei Lee -

This paper develops a nonlinear spatial autoregressive model. Of particular interest is a structural interaction model for share data. We consider possible instrumental variable (IV) and maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) for this model, and analyze asymptotic properties of the IV and MLE based on the notion of spatial near-epoch dependence. We also design a statistical test to compare the nonlinear transformation against alternatives. Monte Carlo experiments are designed to investigate finite sample performance of the proposed estimates and the sizes and powers of the test.
