A shared neighbor conditional autoregressive model for small area spatial data
Lawson, A.B., Rotejanaprasert, C., Moraga, P., & Choi, J. (2015) A shared neighbor conditional autoregressive model for small area spatial data. Environmetrics, 26(6), pp. 383-392.
The use of conditional autoregressive (CAR) models for spatial effects is commonplace, especially when dealing with aggregated count data in health studies. CAR models are convenient and relatively easy to implement but suffer from the fact that they have limited flexibility in modeling correlation. We introduce a new CAR model that can accommodate different neighborhood features (including shared neighbors). Further, we examine via simulation how this model performs in comparison with standard CAR models. We also consider the application to a small area health data example.

Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
