Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • Understand the main spatial econometric models and their applications
  • Apply spatial econometric techniques
  • Manipulate, transform and display spatial data in R

Subject of course

  • Econometric models with spatial dependence (SAR, SEM, SDM)
  • Econometric models with spatial heterogeneity (GWR, MGWR)
  • Application of the theoretical contents using R

Teaching methods

Block 1 at the start of the semester: Theoretical lectures on spatial aspects of econometric modelling, possible estimation techniques and interpretation of results. R codes for the application of the theoretical contents are produced in the tutorial part. Students present a project proposal in teams of two to conclude block 1.

Block 2 at the end of the semester: students present their projects and each give feedback on the project of one other group.
