This project aims to extend the functionality of pysal.spreg to deal with panel data econometric models. Spatial panels refer to data containing time series observations of a number of geographical units. Specifically, this project will focus on static panel models with fixed and random effects. Also, I will develop a framework to test the spatial lag, the spatial error model, and the spatial Durbin model against each other, as well as a framework to choose among fixed effects, random effects or a model without fixed/random effects. Thus, this project will handle panel data, estimate panel models and provide specification tests.
