Description Network data Model estimation Author(s) References See Also

The `spflow`

package provides function to estimate models of
origin-destination flows with spatial autocorrelation.
The implementation exploits the efficiency gains of the matrix formulation
that avoids duplication of the data that describes the origins and
the destinations.
It offers new data structures and a convenient formula interface
that allows to estimate the models with maximal efficiency and minimal
effort for the user.
The estimators are detailed in \insertCiteDargel2021;textualspflow.

The package provides a new class for representing network data. These classes help to exploit the relational structure of the data and ensure that all origins and destinations are correctly identified.

The `spflow()`

function is the main function for estimation and can be used
out of the box using the default configuration, which corresponds to the
most general model possible.
Fine grained control over the estimation procedure is given via the
`spflow_control()`

argument through which the user can change, for example,
the estimation method or the way in which the covariates should be used.
