Quantile Regression for Spatial Data by Daniel P. McMillen

By Daniel P. McMillen

Quantile regression research differs from extra traditional regression types in its emphasis on distributions. while average regression techniques convey how the predicted price of the based variable responds to a metamorphosis in an explanatory variable, quantile regressions suggest envisioned adjustments for the whole distribution of the established variable. regardless of its merits, quantile regression remains to be no longer well-known within the research of spatial info. the target of this ebook is to make quantile regression systems extra available for researchers operating with spatial facts units. The emphasis is on interpretation of quantile regression effects. a chain of examples utilizing either simulated and real facts units exhibits how easily likely complicated quantile regression effects might be interpreted with units of well-constructed graphs. either parametric and nonparametric types of spatial versions are thought of in detail.

1 A Monte Carlo Analysis of Assessment Ratios 31 Fig. 9114 The red line in Fig. 1 represents the predictions from an OLS regression of A/P on P. 1. , that assessments are proportional to sales prices. Though this result is correct, it completely overlooks the high variability at high and low sales prices. Other specifications are shown in Figs. 1. Though all regressions indicate a roughly proportional set of assessments, they also all completely overlook the high variance at low and high sales prices.

5). 6 shows the difference between the predictions for the 10 and 90 % quantiles. , a larger variance. Interestingly, the spread in the distribution tends to be larger in areas with high prices—in areas along the northern shore and in the extreme western part of the city, also along the shoreline. This analysis shows how even a simple hedonic price function can produce interesting implications for the distribution of sales prices. 2 shows that an increase in living area and the presence of a view both shift the distribution of 54 5 Conditionally Parametric Quantile Regression Fig.

Although the statutory assessment rate was 16 % for these properties in 2006, actual assessment rates have consistently been much lower than the statutory rate over time. 5 %. Partly because of this pattern of underassessment, Cook County now has ‘‘recalibrated’’ the official target assessment rate to 10 %. Sample averages do not reveal the amount of variability that lies behind the assessment process. 7 presents a kernel density estimate of the distribution of assessment ratios for this sample of properties.
