1 Spatial panel models J Paul Elhorst University of Groningen, Department of Economics, Econometrics and Finance PO Box 800, 9700 AV Groningen, the Netherlands Phone: , Fax: , March 2012 Abstract This chapter provides a survey of the existing literature on spatial panel data models Both static and dynamic models will be considered The paper also demonstrates that spatial econometric models that include lags of the dependent variable and of the independent variables in both space and time provide a useful tool to quantify the magnitude of direct and indirect effects, both in the short term and long term Direct effects can be used to test the hypothesis as to whether a particular variable has a significant effect on the dependent variable in its own economy, and indirect effects to test the hypothesis whether spatial spillovers exist To illustrate these models and their effects estimates, a demand model for cigarettes is estimated based on panel data from 46 US states over the period 1963 to 1992 Keywords Spatial panels, dynamic effects, spatial spillover effects, identification, estimation methods JEL Classification C21, C23, C51 1

4 Spatial econometric model Linear regression model extended to include Endogenous interaction effect (1): ρwy  Dependent variable y of unit A Dependent variable y of unit B  Y denotes an N 1 vector consisting of one observation on the dependent variable for every unit in the sample (i=1,,n)  W is an N N nonnegative matrix describing the arrangement of the units in the sample Exogenous interaction effects (K): WXθ  Independent variable x of unit A Dependent variable y of unit B  X denotes an N K matrix of exogenous explanatory variables Interaction effect among error terms (1): λwu  Error term u of unit A Error term u of unit B 4
5 5 W is an N N matrix describing the spatial arrangement of the spatial units in the sample Usually, W is rownormalized Rownormalizing gives W= /2 0 1/ This is an example of a rownormalized binary contiguity matrix for N=3

7 Fixed effects versus random effects specification Experience shows that spatial econometricians tend to work with spacetime data of adjacent spatial units located in unbroken study areas, otherwise the spatial weights matrix cannot be defined Consequently, the study area often takes a form similar to all counties of a state or all regions in a country Under these circumstances the fixed effects model is more appropriate than the random effects model The idea that a limited set of regions is sampled from a larger population must be rejected and therefore the random effects models 7

10 Empirical illustration: Cigarette Demand in the US Baltagi and Li (2004) estimate a demand model for cigarettes based on a panel from 46 US states log( C it ) = α +β 1 log(p it ) +β 2 log(y it ) +µ i (optional) + λ t (optional) + ε where C it is real per capita sales of cigarettes by persons of smoking age (14 years and older) This is measured in packs of cigarettes per capita P it is the average retail price of a pack of cigarettes measured in real terms Y it is real per capita disposable income Whereas Baltagi and Li (2004) use the first 25 years for estimation to reserve data for out of sample forecasts, we use the full data set covering the period Details on data sources are given in Baltagi and Levin (1986, 1992) and Baltagi et al (2000) They also give reasons to assume the statespecific effects ( µ i) and timespecific effects ( λ t) fixed, in which case one includes state dummy variables and time dummies for each year it, 10

13 To test the hypothesis whether the can be simplified to the spatial error model, H 0 : θ+δβ=0, one may perform a Wald or LR test The results reported in the second column using the Wald test (898, with 2 degrees of freedom [df], p=0011) or using the LR test (823, 2 df, p=0016) indicate that this hypothesis must be rejected Similarly, the hypothesis that the can be simplified to the spatial lag model, H 0 : θ=0, must be rejected (Wald test: 1483, 2 df, p=0006; LR test: 1575, 2 df, p=0004) This implies that both the spatial error model and the spatial lag model must be rejected in favor of the Conclusion: Spatial Durbin model 13
14 Hausman's specification test can be used to test the random effects model against the fixed effects model The results (3061, 5 df, p<001) indicate that the random effects model must be rejected Another way to test the random effects model against the fixed effects model is to estimate the parameter "phi" ( φ 2 in Baltagi, 2005), which measures the weight attached to the crosssectional component of the data and which can take values on the interval [0,1] If this parameter equals 0, the random effects model converges to its fixed effects counterpart; if it goes to 1, it converges to a model without any controls for spatial specific effects We find phi=0087, with tvalue of 681, which just as Hausman's specification test indicates that the fixed and random effects models are significantly different from each other Conclusion: Fixed effects model 14

20 Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Longterm direct Longterm indirect Longterm direct effect Log(Y) Longterm indirect effect Log(Y) no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (2339) (2473) (959) 0508 (727) (226) 0610 (098) 0530 (1548) 0594 (1045) 0770 (355) (747) (215) 0345 (048) The spatial spillover effects (indirect effects estimates) of both variables are negative and significant Ownstate price increases will restrain people not only from buying cigarettes in their own state, but to a limited extent also from buying cigarettes in neighboring states (elasticity 022) By contrast, whereas an income increase has a positive effects on cigarette consumption in the own state, it has a negative effect in neighboring states 20
21 The first result is not consistent with Baltagi and Levin (1992), who found that price increases in a particular state due to tax increases meant to reduce cigarette smoking and to limit the exposure of nonsmokers to cigarette smoke encourage consumers in that state to search for cheaper cigarettes in neighboring states However, whereas Baltagi and Levin s (1992) model is dynamic, it is not spatial; and whereas our model so far contains spatial interaction effects, it is not (yet) dynamic 21
22 Results: Dynamic spatial panel data model Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Shortterm indirect no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (349) The shortterm spatial spillover effect of a price increase turns out to be positive; the elasticity amounts to 016 and is highly significant (tvalue 349) This finding is in line with the original finding of Baltagi and Levin (1992) in that a price increase in one state encourages consumers to search for cheaper cigarettes in neighboring states 22
23 Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Shortterm direct Shortterm direct effect Log(Y) Longterm direct Longterm direct effect Log(Y) no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (1148) 0099 (336) (2339) (2473) (959) 0530 (1548) 0594 (1045) 0770 (355) Consistent with microeconomic theory, the shortterm direct effects appear to substantially smaller than the longterm direct effects; versus for the price variable and 0099 versus 0770 for the income variable 23
24 Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Longterm direct Longterm direct effect Log(Y) no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (2339) (2473) (959) 0530 (1548) 0594 (1045) 0770 (355) The longterm direct effects in the dynamic, on their turn, appear to be greater (in absolute value) than their counterparts in the nondynamic ; versus for the price variable and 0770 versus 0594 for the income variable Apparently, the nondynamic model underestimates the longterm effects 24
25 Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Longterm indirect Longterm indirect effect Log(Y) no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (727) (226) 0610 (098) (747) (215) 0345 (048) Although greater and again positive, we do NOT find empirical evidence that the longterm spatial spillover effect is also significant A similar result is found by Debarsy et al (2011) The spatial spillover effect of an income increase is not significant either A similar result is found by Debarsy et al (2011) 25
26 Table 2 Effects estimates of cigarette demand using different model specifications Determinants (1) (2) (3) Longterm indirect Longterm indirect effect Log(Y) no fixed effects with fixed effects Dynamic with lag WY t (727) (226) 0610 (098) (747) (215) 0345 (048) Interestingly, the spatial spillover effect of the income variable in the nondynamic spatial panel data model appeared to be negative and significant Apparently, the decision whether to adopt a dynamic or a nondynamic model represents an important issue 26
27 Determinants (1) (2) (3) Dynamic no fixed effects with fixed effects with lag WY t1 Log(C) (6504) W*Log(C) 0337 (1109) 0264 (825) 0076 (200) W*Log(C) (029) Log(P) (2180) (2436) (1319) Log(Y) 0554 (1496) 0603 (1027) 0100 (416) W*Log(P) 0780 (1115) 0093 (113) 0170 (366) W*Log(Y) (1109) (393) (087) LogL To investigate whether the extension of the nondynamic model to the dynamic spatial panel data model increases the explanatory power of the model, one may test whether the coefficients of the variables Y t1 and WY t1 are jointly significant using an LRtest The outcome of this test (2 ( )=18638 with 2 df) evidently justifies the extension of the model with dynamic effects 27
