Aggregation Bias in Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Spatial Autoregressive Processes

Abstract

In statistical models of spatial behavior, there is often a mismatch between the scale at which data is available and the scale at which key spatial dependencies are known to occur. However, in attempting to incorporate Þner grain information about spatial dependencies, certain estimation problems arise. Here it is shown that maximum likelihood procedures… (More)
