ESTIMATING PREDICTION ERROR IN A SPATIAL REGRESSION MODEL

by Nesan Chelliah .

Abstract: In this paper we consider a spatial linear regression model with random effect. Using a new estimator for covariance matrix we have derived an expression for computing the expected value of the estimated variance of the prediction error.
