Given two continuous numeric variables, calculate the bivariate Local Moran's I.

## Usage

local_moran_bv(x, y, nb, wt, nsim = 499)

## Arguments

x

a numeric vector of same length as y.

y

a numeric vector of same length as x.

nb

a neighbor list object for example as created by st_contiguity().

wt

a weights list as created by st_weights().

nsim

the number of simulations to run.

## Value

a data.frame containing two columns Ib and p_sim containing the local bivariate Moran's I and simulated p-values respectively.

## Details

The Bivariate Local Moran, like its global counterpart, evaluates the value of x at observation i with its spatial neighbors' value of y. The value of $$I_i^B$$ is just xi * Wyi. Or, in simpler words the local bivariate Moran is the result of multiplying x by the spatial lag of y. Formally it is defined as

$$I_i^B= cx_i\Sigma_j{w_{ij}y_j}$$

Other global_moran: global_moran(), global_moran_bv(), global_moran_perm(), global_moran_test()

## Examples

x <- guerry_nb$crime_pers y <- guerry_nb$wealth
nb <- guerry_nb$nb wt <- guerry_nb$wt
