A spatial latent class model

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 162, issue C, 62-68

Abstract: This paper applies the latent class approach to underlying spatial dynamic models. Spatial weights are assumed to be time-varying, although the class membership of each unit is fixed over time. The class-specific parameters and class memberships are estimated with EM algorithm. The performance of the proposed model with a finite sample is examined using Monte Carlo simulation.
