ERSA 2016 Pre-conference Workshop on Spatial Econometrics
Tuesday morning’s workshop was a whole semester’s worth of material and ideas stuffed into just 3 hours. But James LeSage and Roger Bivand shared their presentation materials, teaching datasets and code files, so I consider it all my homework for the coming weeks to work through. Good timing, really for a current piece of work that I’ll be returning to. Next week I’ll be spending some time with: LeSage’s method to use a Bayesian approach to test posterior model probabilities and Bivand’s method of estimating hierarchical spatial models to separate random and fixed effects. The information and resources are great, but it’s always nice to connect directly with people who are truly expert and committed to sharing their expertise.
