A Test Strategy for Spurious Spatial Regression, Spatial Nonstationarity, and Spatial Cointegration
A test strategy consisting of a twofold application of a Lagrange Multiplier test is suggested as a device to reveal spatial nonstationarity and spurious spatial regeression. It is further illustrated how the test strategy can be used as a diagnostic for presence of a spatial cointegrating relationship between two variables. Using Monte Carlo simulations it is shown that the small sample behaviour of the test strategy is as desired in these cases.
