Abstract

This study aims to extend the understanding of regional development mechanisms in China. This study investigates spatial non-stationarity in China's regional development mechanisms by applying geographically weighted techniques on spatial datasets in the Greater Beijing Area, China. The analyses reveal two results: First, regional development mechanisms in the Greater Beijing Area show significant spatial non-stationarity; and second, development mechanisms have strong local characteristics; this study hence complements the current literature in China's regional development studies. The study demonstrates the importance of local spatial modeling techniques in regional development research.
