Factors Determining the Development of Minimum Comparable Areas and Spatial Interaction
No 9e7xz, OSF Preprints from Center for Open Science
One popular strand of literature concerning economic growth and/or GDP focuses on the growth/GDP of minimum comparable areas (MCAs), but conducting research in this area is difficult due to data problems. To understand the nature of the microlevel structure, we estimate the determinants of the GDP of MCAs in Turkey since no single study covers all towns. We use spatial models and show that regional development policies should be based on the actual contiguity of MCAs, which is not currently considered in policies. We utilize Bayesian criteria to determine the best-fitting spatial weight matrix, whereas many previous studies have chosen such matrices subjectively.
