This reading group moderated by consultants from CSCAR will focus on spatial analysis especially as practiced in social sciences. We will meet for 1.5 to 2 hours every month on the fourth Thursday and discuss one or two chapters from relevant graduate level textbooks. We will focus on the concepts and applications but will also try to discuss the technical details. The format is open-ended, and the key objective is to support learning at different knowledge and skill levels. If there is interest, we will also cover software implementation of techniques in R or Python. We will select reading material that is available via U-M library or freely accessible online.
The details for the third meeting are below.
Date – March 24, 2022
Time – 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Readings – We will discuss the following chapters:
(1) Chapter 4: Diagnosing Spatial Dependence (from Spatial Analysis for the Social Sciences by David Darmofal)
(3) Chapter 5: Diagnosing Spatial Dependence in the Presence of Covariates (from Spatial Analysis for the Social Sciences by David Darmofal)
Digital copies of the book are available from the UM Library.
