Abstract

We analyze the existence of some regularities in the spatial distribution of labelled individuals. Several indexes for measuring the relationship between the non-ordered categorical variable and the geolocation variables are evaluated together with a new proposed one. Simulations suggest that this new index is quite robust and efficient when compared with the previously known ones.
