Revisiting the Boston data set (Harrison and Rubinfeld, 1978)

In the extended topical sphere of Regional Science, more scholars are addressing empirical questions using spatial and spatio-temporal data. An emerging challenge is to alert “new arrivals” to existing bodies of knowledge that can inform the ways in which they structure their work. It is a particular matter of opportunity and concern that most of the data used is secondary. This contribution is a brief review of questions of system articulation and support, illuminated retrospectively by a deconstruction of the Harrison and Rubinfeld (1978) Boston data set and hedonic house value analysis used to elicit willingness to pay for clean air.

My research interested is spatial, temporal, and spatiotemporal data in R. I am one of the authors, and maintainer, of sp and sf. You'll find my tutorial material at https://edzer.github.io/UseR2017/ - note that I will update it until shortly before the tutorial.
