Torsten Hägerstrand’s 1953 study of innovation diffusion  was pathbreaking in many ways. It was based on an explicit micro-model of information spread, and on Monte Carlo simulation of the hypothesised spatial process. Using the original aggregated data and Hope-type tests of the ability of the simulations to capture the observed adoptions, (author?)  and (author?)  and others found problems. This study attempts to examine the extent to which we may be able to "do better" with a range of approaches drawn from spatial statistics, including using a SAR lattice model, geostatistical modelling, Moran eigenvectors, and other approaches.

Brekke, Kurt Richard; Siciliani, Luigi; Straume, Odd Rune (Discussion paper;8/2013, Working paper, 2013-04)Using a spatial competition framework with three ex ante identical hospitals, we study the effects of a hospital merger on quality, price and welfare. The merging hospitals always reduce quality, but the non-merging hospital ...
A New Latent Class to Fit Spatial Econometrics Models with Integrated Nested Laplace Approximations Gómez-Rubio, Virgilio; Bivand, Roger; Rue, Håvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)The new slm latent model for estimating spatial econometrics models using INLA has recently been introduced. It will be described briefly and its use will be demonstrated in the accompanying poster.
