  • Characteristics, Causes and Spillover Effects of Road Traffic Crashes.

    Lambert Academic Publishers, Germany  

    In many instances where regression analysis is applied to spatial data, various measurement
    problems, spatial externalities, spatial dependence and other spatial effects which may lead to
    dependent error terms could arise. As such, the standard econometric modeling techniques
    become invalid. The main methodological problems stem from the existence of spatial effects
    in the form of spatial dependence (also known as spatial autocorrelation).
    For illustration, data were obtained…

  • Estimating Bias of Omitting Spatial Effect in Spatial Autoregressive (SAR) Model

    International Journal of Statistics and Applications  

    Regression models commonly used to analyze cross-section and panel data assume that observations/regions are independent of one another. Relaxing this assumption of independent observations in a cross sectional setting requires that we provide a parsimonious way to specify structure for the dependence between the n observational units that make up our size n data sample. Spatial econometrics techniques allow us to account for dependence between observations which often arise when observations…

    African Journal of Governance and Development 3(1):46-63  

    In 2010, the governments of the world declared 2011-2020 as the Decade of Action for Road Safety. The unanimous support for this Decade of Action from member states explains the growing awareness of the devastating scale of road traffic injuries as a global public health and development problem. Despite the enormous toll exacted by road traffic injuries, they have for many years been neglected by global health and development agendas, and funding for interventions has not been commensurate wi

    Journal of the Nigerian Statistical Association (JNSA), Vol.26  

    The high incidence of Under-five Mortality Rate (U5MR) in Nigeria had been widely reported in literature. This paper identified the hotspots of U5MR, that is the probability of dying between birth and age 5 expressed per 1000 livebirths, using two proximate determinants-environmental contamination and maternal factors. Data from the Nigerian Demographic Health Survey (NDHS, 2008) were used with a focus on seven variables, namely, source of drinking water, toilet facility, type of cooking fuel…

  • Spatial Modelling of Road Traffic Accidents in Oyo State, Nigeria

    African Journal of Sustainable Development (AJSD) 4(2): 99-118  

    Roads often become sources of sorrow and venues of loss. Road accidents are a global scourge characteristic of our technological era, whose list of victims insidiously grows longer day by day. Most families have found themselves mourning, surrounded by indifference that is all too common as if this was a price that the society has to pay for the right to travel. The basic underlying assumption is that there is a spill over effect across the study area. The neighbourhood characteristics focused…

  • Modelling Road Traffic Crashes using Modified Spatial Autoregressive Model

     – 

    Spatial contiguity of locations is a major factor in modelling Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) to enable a proper understanding of Spatial Dependency (SD) in RTC occurrences in order to maximise information for effective delivery of road safety remedial measures. The Spatial Autoregressive (SAR) model often used in modelling RTC accounts for SD only in the Endogenous Variable (EV). This method ignores SD in the Disturbance Term (DT) and Instrumental Variable (IV) which does not allow complete and…
