Abstract

The paper presents an approach for spatial correlation analysis for count variables by comparing their cumulative spatial distributions. Using the concept of LSCDF in classical statistics, it shows that location-specific and its associated K-S-like statistic, which indicate the magnitude of difference between the two spatial distributions, are highly consistent over different levels of spatial scale. The two LSCDFs can provide a geographic description of the two spatial distributions of population groups.
