Weight specification (Model) Scottish lip cancer Synthetic data 1 Synthetic data 2 Synthetic data 3
A1 0.1240 0.2619 < 0.0001 < 0.0001
A2 0.5061 0.1114 < 0.0001 < 0.0001

H5 0.6923 < 0.0001 < 0.0001 < 0.0001
  1. A p-value close to zero suggests the presence of spatial autocorrelation in the observed data
