    Spatial effects include spatial autocorrelation and heterogeneity. Ignoring spatial effects in a modeling process causes misleading significance tests and suboptimal model prediction. In this study, we used three forest plots with different spatial patterns of tree locations (i.e., clustered,...

    A number of studies of spatial knowledge have asked people to recall lists of city names. These studies have used the frequency of a city on lists from a reference location as a surrogate measure of the knowledge acquired for that city by the typical person living at that location. Previous...

    We model correlated voter-candidate issue data within the framework of the Enelow-Hinich spatial model of predictive dimensions. The empirical consequences of this model of the issue data are surprising and allow for an indirect test of the Enelow-Hinich spatial model. The central prediction of...

    Ecologists increasingly use spatial statistics to study vegetation patterns. Mostly, however, these techniques are applied in a purely descriptive fashion without a priori statements on the pattern characteristics expected. We formulated such a priori predictions in a study of spatial pattern in...

    Abstract: In this paper, we test empirically for competition among Chinese provinces embedded in a centralized political system. To motivate the empirical work, we adapt Besley and Case''s model (American Economic Review, 1995) to a model of yardstick competition ‘from the top’. In...

    Until 1993, all liquor stores in the Canadian province of Alberta were government owned and run. In the fall of 1993, the provincial government exited liquor retailing, all government stores were shut down, and entrepreneurs were allowed to open private liquor stores. In this article, we take...

  • Investigating Cue Competition in Contextual Cuing of Visual Search. Beesley, T.; Shanks, David R. // Journal of Experimental Psychology. Learning, Memory & Cognition;May2012, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p709 

    A fundamental principle of learning is that predictive cues or signals compete with each other to gain control over behavior. Associative and propositional reasoning theories of learning provide radically different accounts of cue competition. Propositional accounts predict that under conditions...

  • Mergers that Harm Competitors. Boyer, Kenneth D. // Review of Industrial Organization;Summer1992, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p191 

    Standard models of oligopolistic interdependence predict that firms remaining outside of a horizontal merger will benefit from it. Why, then, do nonparticipating firms feel threatened by mergers? This paper shows that under reasonable conditions a non-participating firm is harmed by a merger....

  • Modeling and Prediction of Tree Height--Diameter Relationships Using Spatial Autoregressive Models. Junfeng Lu; Lianjun Zhang // Forest Science;Jun2011, Vol. 57 Issue 3, p252 

    Three spatial autoregressive models were applied to model the tree height- diameter relationship, including spatial lag model (SLM), spatial error model (SEM), and spatial Durbin model (SDM), with ordinary least squares (OLS) as a benchmark. Five spatial weight matrices were used to evaluate the...

    Type II diabetes is a growing health problem in the United States. Understanding geographic variation in diabetes prevalence will inform where resources for management and prevention should be allocated. Investigations of the correlates of diabetes prevalence have largely ignored how spatial...
