Title

spseudor2 --- Calculates goodness-of-fit measures in spatialautoregressive models

Syntax

spseudor2,wmat(name)

Description

spseudor2calculates two so-called pseudo R2 measures to assess goodness of fit in spatial autoregressive models estimated by spatial two stage least squares or spatial GMM. The first measure is computed as the square of the correlation between the predicted and observed values of the dependent variable. The other one is calculated as the ratio of the variance of the predicted values to the variance of the observed values of the dependent variable.In calculating the predicted values of the dependent variable,

spseudor2takes into account the fact that the spatially lagged dependent variable is endogenous.

N.B.:spseudor2is intended to work after ivregress and ivreg29 and requires at least Stata 10.1.Also,

spseudor2assumes that the spatially lagged dependent variable precedes all other endogenous variables, if any, and is the first variable of the listed right-hanside variables in the model.

wmat(name)indicates the name of the spatial weights matrix used in the spatial autoregressive model estimation. The matrix must have been saved to a Mata file.
