Table 1 Standardised proximity matrices tested in this paper for between-LADs and between-MSOAs autocorrelation

From: The spatial structure of chronic morbidity: evidence from UK census returns

Matrix identifiers Method of construction
LADs MSOAs  
L.A M.A Contiguity matrix (with isles attached to the mainland) [spdep + manual adjustments]
L.B k M.B k k-nearest neighbours (based on Euclidian distances between population centroids) [spdep]
L.C k Up to k LADs from which most new residents originate [62], binary weights
L.D k Up to k LADs from which most new residents originate [62], proximity weights k, …, 3, 2, 1
