This new edition brings you updated coverage on how to use SAS/GIS software. A SAS/GIS administrator must be able to locate and import spatial data in order to create maps that match end users' needs. This guide assists administrators with importing spatial data and creating SAS/GIS spatial databases. It also provides administrators and users with an understanding of the following: how SAS/GIS uses spatial data, where to obtain spatial data, how to import that data into SAS/GIS, and how to use the GIS procedure. This guide also assists users with viewing and analyzing data in the context of it

Poverty mapping in developing countries is used to identify ways to improve living standards and, until now, methods have been generally based on econometric models which do not take into account the spatial dependence that may exist in human societies, with regard to income distribution. This report uses spatial regression techniques to model more accurately the distribution of poverty across regions in Ecuador.

This paper studies the spatial dimension of growth in Mexico over the past three decades. The literature on regional economic growth shows a decrease in regional dispersion from 1970 to 1985, and a sharp increase afterward coinciding with the trade liberalization of the Mexican economy. Using spatial econometric, tools the authors analyze how the process of convergence/divergence has mapped spatially and whether it makes sense to talk about spatial regions in Mexico. Although the rich North-poor South dichotomy has dominated this phenomenon, interesting patterns emerge. Namely the distribution

The Berlin Workshop Series 2009 presents selected papers from meetings held from September 30 - October 2, 2007, at the tenth annual forum co-hosted by InWEnt and the World Bank in preparation for the Bank's World Development Report. At the 2007 meetings, key researchers and policy makers from Europe, the United States, and developing countries met to identify and brainstorm on spatial disparities and development policy, which are later examined in depth in the 'World Development Report 2009'.This volume presents papers from the Berlin Workshop sessions on issues relating to understanding spat
