# Spatial Autocorrelation Functions

I looked into using spatial autocorrelation functions in my dissertation to characterize the scale’’ at which processes operate electorally. I did an analysis of presidential vote by county, trying to identify where, exactly, clusters of votes tend to become decorrelated. The typical diameter at which the so-called “spatial autocorrelation function” goes to zero denotes how wide a typical spatial cluster might be, and the partial spatial autocorrelation function gives an anticipated order at which spatial autocorrelation may hold.

finally got this elections simulator working, based on Linzer’s 2012 paper on gaussian mixture modelling for elections data. imported from:<a href=‘https://yetanothergeographer.
