Estimation of Simultaneous Systems of Spatially Interrelated Cross Sectional Equations

Harry H. Kelejian and Ingmar Prucha, Journal of Econometrics 118(2), 27-50, February .


In this paper we consider a simultaneous system of spatially interrelated cross sectional equations. Our speci.cation incorporates spatial lags in the endogenous and exogenous variables. In modelling the disturbance process we allow for both spatial correlation as well as correlation across equations. The data set is taken to be a single cross section of observations. The model may be viewed as an extension of the widely used single equation Cli3-Ord model. We suggest computationally simple limited and full information instrumental variable estimators for the parameters of the system and give formal large sample results.
