Belotti, F., Di Porto, E., Santoni, G. (2016), Testing for Spatially Smooth Unobserved Heterogeneity, slides

Building on our previous work with the Spatial Difference estimator we propose here a Spatial Within estimator and an Hausman-like test to detect the presence of local unobserved heterogeneity. The method is illustrated using data on the Kenyan project in Miguel and Kremer (2004). Consistently with Miguel and Kremer (2004) results, we find that the medical treatment spills over a radius of approximately 3 Km.
