Spatial Distribution Based on Semivariogram Model

Gandi Pawitan


This article aims to discuss some aspects in conducting inferential analysis of census data.
In this analysis, the assumptions of normality and IID (independently and identically distribution)
in the observations are no longer realistic. Hence conventional analyses which are
based on these assumptions are invalid and unreliable. Other alternatives can be considered,
such as semivariogram analysis. Semivariogram analysis assumes that observations
are dependent geographically. The analysis is useful in understanding spatial distribution of
characteristics under investigation.
Keywords: census, aggregation, semivariogram, autocorrelation, spatial distribution
