Essays on spatial econometrics: Hodges-Lehmann estimators and hospital efficiency

Strumann, Christoph

This dissertation consists of three articles considering spatial econometrics. The first article in Chapter 2 proposes Hodges-Lehmann type point and interval estimators for the spatial parameter in static panel models with spatially correlated disturbances. The focus of Chapter 3 is to estimate spatial spillovers of hospital efficiency. In Chapter 4, spatial econometric techniques are applied in order to handle appropriately the spatial dependence in the data as detected in Chapter 3.
