Chi publishes first book on spatial regression methods
After taking ten years to complete research and writing, SSRI co-fund Guangqing Chi recently published his book, “Spatial Regression Models for the Social Sciences” with co-author Jun Zhu. The book serves as a primer type of textbook for social scientists who would like a quick start to learning spatial regression methods.
These methods include exploratory spatial data analysis, methods dealing with spatial dependence and/or spatial heterogeneity, and spatio-temporal regression models. The book will also be useful for social scientists who are familiar with standard regression methods and desire to learn spatial regression models and methods.
