Spatial Discrete Choice and Spatial Limited Dependent Variable Models: a review with an emphasis on the use in Regional Health Economics
Despite spatial econometrics is now considered a consolidated discipline, only in recent years we have experienced an increasing attention to the possibility of applying it to the field of discrete choices (e.g. Smirnov, 2010 for a recent review) and limited dependent variable models. In particular, only a small number of papers introduced the above-mentioned models in Health Economics. The main purpose of the present paper is to review the different methodological solutions in spatial discrete choice models as they appeared in several applied fields by placing an emphasis on the health economics applications.
