Last Time The concept of spatial autocorrelation. “Near things are more similar than distant things” The use of the weights matrix W ij to measure “nearness” The difficulty of measuring “nearness” This was a surprise! This Time Measures of Spatial Autocorrelation Join Count Statistic Moran’s I Geary’s C Getis-Ord G statistic Briggs Henan University 2010 2
Global Measures and Local Measures Briggs Henan University 2010 3 An equivalent local measure can be calculated for most global measures China Global Measures A single value which applies to the entire data set The same pattern or process occurs over the entire geographic area An average for the entire area Local Measures A value calculated for each observation unit Different patterns or processes may occur in different parts of the region A unique number for each location

Briggs Henan University 2010 4 Join (or Joins or Joint) Count Statistic Polygons only binary (1,0) data only Polygon has or does not have a characteristic For example, a candidate won or lost an election Based on examining polygons which share a border Do they have the same characteristic or not? Border same on each side Border not the same on each side Requires a contiguity matrix for polygons
Different numbers of BW, BB and WW joins Briggs Henan University 2010 5 Join (or Joint or Joins) Count Statistic Uses binary (1,0) data Shown here as B/W (black/white) Measures the number of borders (“joins”) of each type (1,1), (0,0), (1,0 or 0,1) relative to total number of borders For 6 x 6 matrix, border totals are: 60 for Rook Case 110 for Queen Cas e Small number of BW joins (6 only for rook) Large proportion of BB and WW joins Large number of BW joins Small number of BB and WW joins

Briggs Henan University 2010 6 Join Count: Test Statistic Test Statistic given by: Z= Observed - Expected SD of Expected Expected given by: Standard Deviation of Expected (standard error) given by: Where: k is the total number of joins (neighbors) p B is the expected proportion Black, if random p W is the expected proportion White m is calculated from k according to: Note: the formulae given here are for free (normality) sampling. Those for non-free (randomization) sampling are substantially more complex. See Wong and Lee 1 st ed. p. 151 compared to p. 155. Se next slide for explanation. Expected = random pattern generated by tossing a coin in each cell.
A Note on Sampling Assumptions: applies to most tests for spatial autocorrelation Test results depend on the assumption made regarding the type of sampling: Free (or normality) sampling Analogous to sampling with replacement After a polygon is selected for a sample, it is returned to the population set The same polygon can occur more than one time in a sample Non-free (or randomization) sampling Analogous to sampling without replacement

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
