Econometría espacial: una aplicación a los problemas de sobrepeso y obesidad en las provincias de Argentina
[Spatial econometrics: an application to obesity indicators in Argentinian provinces]

  • Viego, Valentina

Despite their vigorous expansion in the last 30 years in the field of econometrics, spatial models are still not widely disseminated in the empirical literature in Argentina focused on quantitative aspects of regional scope. This paper aims to present the central lines of spatial econometric analysis applied to the problem of overweight in the population and its determinants. We use provincial data from the National Survey on Risk Factors. The results show that conventional econometric tools are insufficient for identifying the individual impact of income, poverty or education on the phenomenon of overweight.
