5 The correlation can be visualized in the Moran’s scatter-plot, which gives an idea of the relationship between the value of the variable in neighborhood i and its value in the vicinity—its spatial lag. 6 Spatial Moran’s I is the slope of the simple regression between the standardized values of these two elements. Anselin (1995) defines the local indicators of spatial association (LISAs) as “any statistic that satisfies the following two requirements: (a) the LISA for each observation gives an indication of the extent of significant spatial clustering of similar values around that observation; (b) the sum of LISAs for all observations is proportional to a global indicator of spatial association” (Anselin, 1995, p.

Either way, the first law of geography states that spatial dependence is the rule rather than the exception (Anselin and Bera, 1998); as such, accounting for the correlation of observations closely located in space is as important as dealing with other common data-related problems, such as time autocorrelation in panel data and heteroskedasticity in cross-section data. Technically, spatial dependence is a property of joint density functions and as such, it is virtually impossible to be verified in practice.
