Comparing estimation methods for spatial econometrics techniques using R.
Abstract: Recent advances in spatial econometrics model fitting
techniques have made it more desirable to be able to compare results and
timings. Results should correspond between implementations using different
applications, while timings are more readily compared within a single
application. A broad range of model fitting techniques are provided by the
contributed R packages for spatial econometrics. These model fitting
techniques are associated with methods for estimating impacts and some
tests, which will also be presented and compared. This review constitutes
an up-to-date demonstration of techniques now available in R, and mentions
some that will shortly become more generally available.
